Attended the monthly writing group meeting at the library. One member shared her editor’s copious notes. The remarks were thorough and helpful and I look forward to using this editor one day. Another member is using her now and promises to share next time. He has already emailed us a copy of the complete novel — a nautical adventure set in the 1870s. We had only been reviewing his work piecemeal and often out of order, so it will be great to see the whole novel.

My short piece, “Full Moon Lament,” was reviewed again. My revisions improved the work and they encouraged me to go look for a publisher. I’ll be spending this week, at least, looking for short story publications to submit to. I suppose the story can be summarized as a tongue-in-cheek twist on the werewolf tale.

Hopefully I can report good news here!

I submitted a second short story, a little over 1,000 words, to the writing group.

I submitted a second short story, a little over 1,000 words, to the writing group. This one I’m less satisfied with — in that I’m not sure it has any appeal to anyone other than myself. It’s intended as a tongue-in-cheek twist on the werewolf curse. The problem might be the medium. Perhaps it would come off better as a short short film. At least it’s written and I can move on to something else.

Like getting back to my novel.
