Not much of a splash

Well, my first official ‘no thank you’ letter arrived today for “Fish Girl.”  However, I do not lose heart–an official ‘no thank you’ is like the Post Office declaring that Kris Kringle is Santa Claus: I must be a real writer!  *wry grin*

“Fish Girl” did not find a home at this particular magazine, but I got invited to try again, so that could have been a lot worse.  Sadly, it was basically a form letter, no particularly helpful comments included on letter or manuscript, but it’s all ok.  I would have been pretty ridiculous to expect instant success, and didn’t.  So I shall try again, with this publication or another, with this story or another.  I have a lot of works in progress and a lot of ideas still bubbling away in the back of my head.  Shall file this one away and keep going.

In other news, I now have a new desk chair from which to keep writing (yay!) as well as new curtains, some picture frames, and a rug.  My room is looking stunningly habitable these days…pity I never seem to be in it.  When is April vacation week (3rd busiest week in the museum calendar) over?

Jump into the conversation, the water's fine!
