Yesterday, I read a magazine. I actually used my GooglePlay money on a digital subscription of Writer's Digest. I got the print edition about 10 years ago, but let it run out because I didn't have much time to read magazines (and frankly, the cost was higher than I liked). Then I recently ran across the digital version lately and thought heck, why not try again? I had the money racked up from taking Google Polls surveys. So far, so good. I like it, and having it on my tablet is much more convenient than having to keep track of a print copy of a magazine.
Today, I sent submissions for a couple of my short stories. I've written a few stories here and there, but I haven't submitted them to magazines in quite a long while. I did a couple of anthologies last year, but it's probably been 2-3 years since I queried a short story to a literary magazine/website. Who knows? Maybe my new query approach based on the information about me on the front page of this website will interest them more than the boring "Dear Editor" templates I used before. It's worth a try.
And speaking of discovery, who's excited to see the images coming from the New Horizon's probe? It's absolutely fascinating, and coming right with all of the great trailers and news from San Diego ComicCon. That's the kind of news I'm talking about! Enough with the Confederate Flag debate. I want some science and fantasy news! Oh yes, and SEC Media days start tomorrow too. Rick will be sure to tune in for that so he'll have the 411 on the upcoming football season before his outpatient surgery on those cysts on Wednesday. By the way, I'll update you on how his surgery goes through Twitter and Facebook. I'm sure I'll also have a late week blog, but here's hoping that his surgery doesn't contribute to any adventures worth blogging about! We're going for a "hobbit" thing there: safe, and no adventures!
That's all today. Not much, but that's quite alright. I'm happy!
Take care, and have a great week.
