Happy 2019 everyone! Welcome back to another #WriteTuesday – the first one for the year! 🙂
Unfortunately this weekend I ended up getting sick. So I stayed home, drank a lot of tea, ate a lot of soup, and just generally tried to get better. It’s been slow going though – my throat has been sore and just hasn’t gotten better.
But in other news, over the weekend I heard back from Martian Migraine Press about “A Friend from the Deep.” Unfortunately it was rejected (which I was kind of expecting). So I looked through my list of saved markets on Duotrope and found a potential match for the piece in Zooscape. I sent “A Friend from the Deep” off to them and shall now resume waiting. I found myself obsessively checking my email that day to see if it got rejected by them, so I had to distract myself by going through some other emails, like the weekly ones Duotrope sends out; I found a few more markets that sound interesting, so once I get the story for the Make Your Way anthology done I’ll start working on stuff for them.
Yesterday afternoon I spent a lot of time reading the newest issue of bUneke Magazine (and scheduling tweets about it for @SustaintheNorth). This month’s magazine is full of some great articles about environmental issues plaguing our planet. It’s also got the first book review I wrote for them (I adapted one of the ones on Sustainably North) as well as my usual monthly column (which also happens to be a blog post adapted from Sustainably North). I actually sent the next two month’s articles for bUneke Magazine to the editor on the 2nd, so I’m now a little bit ahead for that! 😀
In the early evening I worked on next Monday’s post for Sustainably North. I decided to write about bUneke Magazine because I’m excited about the book review, plus Mary, the editor of bUneke Magazine, sent me pictures of that and my column. With that done, I’m going to turn away from bUneke stuff for the next few weeks, particularly on Sustainably North; I feel like the blog and its Twitter feed has gotten really caught up with the magazine, and I’d like to just focus on the blog alone for a little bit.
After that, I went through some emails for a bit. But by that point I felt like I had been at the computer for way too long, so I went to go and read. So that’s been my week: relatively productive despite being sick. How has yours been? 🙂
