Two submissions today: "Sic Transit Gloria" went back out the door after a couple of days' rest (and a little nitpicking), and "Don't Look Back" went out for the first time. It's probably the most "experimental" of anything I've written (translation: it's written in present tense and I tweaked grammatical rules a bit), and I'm not 100% certain it works, but I like it--and it's time to get it out the door while I still like it.
I'm debating focusing on short stories for a bit, finish up the half-finished stories I have lying around, cleaning up the couple I've finished but that haven't seen the light of day yet--you know, clean off my desk before the next novel. Not that I'm not poking around the edges of the novel, mind you, but I'd like a clean slate (not to mention more things in circulation!) before I really focus all my attention on it.
(She says, optimistically. I start a new job on Tuesday, so I imagine writing will be back-burnered, at least for a little bit.)Posted by Lisa at May 16, 2004 10:30 AM
