ONE WEEK LEFT!!!
Write. Send it in! You could win!
See all the details here:
Re-read: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, The Hobbit, The Horse and His Boy, and Theft of Swords.
Re-watched: Star Trek 2009, Star Trek: Into the Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond.
Had a late discovery of Grimm on Amazon Prime and watched the first three seasons with my 17-year-old.
Totally new and unplanned viewing: Bad Times at the El Royale.
Disturbing, unique, and interesting. Definitely R-rated for content.
My whole family loved the storytelling style - how the movie was sequenced and presented. We watched this at the request of a family member who did not want to watch another superhero movie at this time. (Venom is going on my to-be-viewed-as-DVD list. I, perhaps, have been re-watching too many superhero movies at home this year. Can there be too many?)
Wrote: a dozen micro fiction stories, one of which I submitted. I plan to submit 5-6 more in the first few weeks of November.
Also wrote: 7,000 words on a new draft of Anomalies (previously: Greenling, Seedlings, Generations, Title Death). I think this is the right draft this time. Plan to make this my NaNoWriMo project and finish it for real this time.
Submission responses: 1 rejection earlier this month. 1 in submission-waiting zone.
Firsts: I went to a new-to-me critique group for the first time and liked it.
Grad School: 2 more credits done. (Total of 10 finished so far, 16 to go.)
Teaching: Ups and downs, love all my students, wish they would all turn in their work.
Plus, ran into a few former students and heard about their lives and goals and dreams. (Yay!)
Family and Community: Ups and Downs, some health concerns (not me), and a reason to strongly urge everyone I know to shower love on everyone they know. Suicide is showing up as a real and urgent issue in the community I live in and among people I know. Remember, we don't know what kind of day someone else has had. Let's be kind. Let's find a way to listen. Let's love one another.
Released: Ashes Burn, Seasons 1-7 as an e-book. There's a Reviewer's Special at Smashwords and it's also available for Kindle.
