entering ReviseAndSubmitMode

Now that I've completed both "The Dybbuk's Moll" (yay!) and "The Straw that Shines Like the Sun" (last week's deathless_pose story) I'm going to enter a mode where I mainly revise and submit stories to places.

The current ReviseAndSubmit plan looks something like this.

February 25 - March 2 = Revise a bunch of shorty short stories (2K or less words) and submit them somewhere:
- "Cat, Owl, Cigarette"
- "Echoes of Oceans From a Distant World"
- "Stars Above and Ice Below"
- "Let Me In, Let Me In"
- "The Straw That Shines Like The Sun"
- "Visiting the Ladies Room Exhibit at the Human Museum"

March 3 - March 7 = revise "The Very Difficult Diwali of Inspector Thirumala Naidu" and send it out to SacSpec for review. This is going to be my next WOTF entry.

March 8 - March 14 = revise "Real Space" (new possible title is "The Reality of Space"). This will be my submission for BayCon writing workshop.

March 15 - March 21 = revise "Fly, Boy" and submit to the "Taking Flight" anthology

March 22 - March 30 = revise "The Very Difficult Diwali of Inspector Thirumala Naidu" and submit it to WOTF.

If there's any extra revision time, I'll tackle revising "Old Town, Old Man, New Man, New Town" (currently in Critters queue for late March go-out) and "The Dybbuk's Moll" (because I know it's not going to leave me alone).

As for new writing, I'll be doing the deathless_pose prompts and maybe playing around with "Seven Drops".

And that's the plan. We'll see how well it shakes out! It's nice to have a plan that includes submitting stories. It makes me feel like I'm doing something.
