Writer’s Market

Writer’s Market released their new look today, and I admit — it looks wonderful…however, I can’t figure out how it works anymore LOL  I wanted to go and update the status of some of my manuscripts (one acceptance and one rejection) but I can’t figure out how to change that — and I’m really missing the ‘Quick List’ button.  With it I could see at a glance if I had any manuscripts that weren’t currently being considered by a publisher — without it I feel lost.

I’ve sent out an email to them begging for help, and hopefully they’ll reply.  Their submission tracker was my most favorite writing tool ever and I’ll be very sad if I can’t figure out how to use this new version.  I’ve got my fingers crossed that they are still working on the site and will add a quick list button and such — or that I’ve just been a goofball and missed the obvious.

If anyone out there knows how to update manuscripts with the new Writer’s Digest or has found a quick list button hiding somewhere PLEASE let me know.

In other, more cheerful news, I’m at over 30k in my novel.  Alas, the quality has taken a rather large turn for the worse, but it’s okay — quantity over quality right?  And if worse comes to worse I can always cannibalize what I’ve got so far 😉

Alright, time to go on another hunt for that quick list button!  Wish me luck!

Sandcastle #5

I thought I was going to be writing a post today about how my NaNoWriMo effort is going (well by the way, 26,094/50,000) and that would be it for today, but nope — I have even better news.

My haiku, “Sandcastle #5”, has been accepted for the November 15th edition of WildChildPublishing.Com — yay!  I’ll link to it from my publications page once that edition goes live. 🙂

NaNo and MySpace

I’m doing NaNoWriMo again this year, and I’m off to a good start — yay! However, I felt a need to procrastinate a bit today and so I whipped up a MySpace page for myself. Rather silly since I’ve got this site to use, and especially since I don’t plan to give up on this page at all, but it seemed like the thing to do.

I also whipped up a few more links for the horizontal nav bar up there *points* so now it doesn’t look quite so empty.

Alas, as much as I’d love to just keep writing here I really ought to get back to my NaNo novel — wish me luck!

They say…

‘They’ say if you’re going to be serious about writing for a living you need to have an ‘Author’ website.  Of course, ‘they’ say alot of things, but I suspect that in this case ‘they’ may be right.  So I’ve created this website…now I just need to think of things to put on it 🙂

I write, I edit and I take a lot of naps.
