I am reading several very cool novels right now–a British murder mystery that is quite a page-turner, a comic fantasy by a good friend (soon to seek publication), and I have another novel on my list for a friend. That, in addition to several chapter/short stories for my crit group, my class and a workshop I am attending this summer. No shortage of reading material!

I am editing a new novel, freelance, and am about half way through. Very much enjoying the work. I can take on very little freelance work (though as a member of CAFE, I could easily fill my plate to over-flowing), because I have so many other projects on the go. One or two gigs a year is about all I seem to be able to manage, while still getting my own writing, teaching, learning, and volunteer work done.

My novel was rejected about 6 months ago, but with four paragraphs of critique from the editor–and a door open for resubmission. Ran it past my critique group and resubmitted this weekend. Yay!

The Nebulas were awesome! Attended the banquet and caught up with several old friends–met new people. SFWA board meetings, as well–really accomplished at lot. A fantastic California weekend!

Was invited to donate a story for free distribution at World Fantasy this fall. My publisher okayed a reprint of “The Director’s Cut,” a literary horror story–I think it will be cool to be in everyone’s book bag!

Tons of work done at the write-off, and momentum all week. The novel is really shaping up! Also, I was notified this week that I was re-elected secretary for SFWA for another year. Yay!

Just finished day 1 of my writer’s group’s semi-annual writing retreat: the Write-Off! Spring is our long weekend (4-day) retreat, and I got about a chapter revised in my novel. Three more days to go!
