Big News Day

  • The California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8 (Self has one eye on the TV as she types this and already crowds seem to be massing in San Francisco —  Opponents of Prop 8 have apparently been gathered there, in a state of high anticipation, since early this morning).
  • “Angels & Demons” made $27.7 million over the weekend, which demonstrates once again why no one should read self’s movie reviews, HA HA HA HA HA
  • Today is the day that changed forever the way self feels about getting back her SASEs. Whenever she gets one of them back she thinks, Oh, another rejection.  There was one in today’s mail, and self let it sit and sit and sit. When she finally did rip it open, she made sure she was standing right next to the trash can.  Her disbelieving eyes saw only two words: “Contract forthcoming.”  Editor surely takes the prize in most laconic communication of the year!  Self submitted one of her “trans-genre” pieces.  She’s on a roll!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.

    Dear Mnemosyne,

    I have you to thank for the Kreative Blogger Award. I should frame your e-mail to me.

    I’ve been doing the Happy Happy Joy Joy since watching “Star Trek”, hmmm . . .

    Send your work to the White Whale Review! The editor, Randi Shapiro, is looking for new writers (of fiction, non-fiction, poetry)

    Thanks for the tip!
    Although just the thought of submitting makes me queasy with nervousness.
