whole lotta writing this weekend

On Saturday and Sunday I did a full revision/rewrite of "Green Tears on Black Velvet" in preparation for sending it (late) to SacSpecFic for this week's meeting. Hopefully they'll forgive me for my lateness (I blame vacation) and at least give the story a once-over to see how it works overall.

Next I need to critique everyone else's stories/chapters by meeting time. I also have a couple other critiques to do for some Internet pals as part of critique trading.

After that it's crank through any final fixes on stories for the anthology invite I received back at Norwescon. I ended up with two stories on the theme ("Green Tears" and "Hair That Binds") so I'll have to figure out which one to send them. Maybe I'll mention the other when I send the first, in case the first doesn't quite tickle the editor's fancy. They really are two rather different stories.

And then it's rework the story I'm sending to the Orycon Writers Workshop and get it out the door by the deadline.

This is all in the midst of family, and life, and work, and ramping up the math contest activities because school is starting soon, and keeping fit and playing footy (playoff game this weekend!)

It just never ends, does it?
