stores go out again  
Did four submissions at lunch today, three by mail (mail!) and one by email. So I'm back up to 18 active stories again.

I'd sure like to see twenty active stories, but that requires finishing either new or revised stories and sending them out. Got to do that. Yes, I do.

Tonight, while A climbs, I'll see if I can finish "The Ghost of Mister Tremendous". The ending is out there, asking me to make it end like this no matter how much I resist the meanness of its nature. I might finally be giving in.

Holy cow that's a lot of submissions. I thought I was all badass earlier this month when I had seven out.

Good show!

Thanks! But when I think of my numbers, I think of Arnie's line from _TRUE LIES_: "Yes, I've killed people but they were all bad."

Yes, I have eighteen stories out but they're All Bad! :-)

But thanks again for the positive words.

Somehow, I doubt this :)

Well, thank you sir!

Your doubt warms the inner cells of my cold, embittered heart!

(How often do you hear *that* sentence?)

(And I'm not really embittered, I just liked the way that sentence sounded. As you know, it takes near-pathological persistence and fortitude to have any measure of success in this business)

I think I was just very effusive with the stories last year and now I'm trying to manage the output into something worthwhile.

But thank you!

Get that query tracker going! And write some more while you're at it! Remember that VP Oath!

Good luck with the subs!

And, at long last, I got that book shipped to you. It went out yesterday so you should have it soonish.

Excellent! I look forward to reading your stories - they sound like a blast!

And if I can pull off the basketball pool win (Go NC! Boo UConn!) then you get extra credit for sending a prize as well. It's a win-win situation.

And thanks for the wishes of luck!

You're smokin'!

Smokin something, that's for sure. Luckily, I think, I'm pretty stubborn on this. That helps. Except for when it doesn't.

That it very impressive. Great job at getting out there. I doubt they are all bad. I've read some of your stories, none were bad.

Well now, you've seen the ones that sold! Something was happening with those. I'm not quite sure what, but that's what I'm trying to begin to figure out...
