These past two weeks have been quite the whirlwind. Hmm, you know what, I’m a writer, I can come up with something more original than “whirlwind.” These past two weeks have been quite the… party girl on her fifth tequila spinning around on the dining room table.
Not as catchy. “Whirlwind” it is!
And really it’s been more like a brisk breeze but come on guys, I’m not a perfect-analogy MACHINE here.
So, what’s been going on?
Well, as you might recall from my previous entry, an agent at the writers conference requested my full manuscript. I made the revision she suggested and sent that baby out. Woo!
Since then I’ve discovered the wonder and beauty of Duotrope.com. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s an amazing service where you can look up literary magazines by genre and subject and other qualities, statistics about their acceptance rates and response times, and other helpful little nuggets. It’s incredible. So nearly all of my days since the conference have been researching journals and reading issues. Yesterday I submitted my short story, The Houseplant in Love with a Girl, to a hilarious e-magazine, so fingers crossed for that.
Oh, and I changed my blog layout. So. You know. Gettin’ real crazy over here. WHIRLWIND!
