I've Landed

It's one of those days that I'll forget later was really successful. So I figured, since I actually have time and I'm always bemoaning to myself the fact that I don't blog as often as I should, I'll recognize it here.

I've written and edited nearly all day. I sent off a piece of memoir/nonfiction to Red Fez, which I hope will be published in the not distant future. I've finished an initial edit of the Billy Bobble sequel (still aiming for the end of the year on that one!), and I also finished a book review and a Q&A for work.

It's nice to mark "Done" on my list of things to do for a day or a week. I add things as I go, too, so those lists are never really done. But that's the way it is with anything. Whether it's doing the laundry, feeding the kids, cleaning the cats' box, tasks both enjoyable and uninspiring greet us each day. I've been able to accomplish ones that meant a lot to me today. And I've even been able to blog about it.

To be sure, I have loads of things to do still. We've closed on submissions for the horror anthology, and while our review team and I check the stories out, I just want to say it's been wonderful to discover new voices. We'll be trumpeting a bit more this year at the Elephant's Bookshelf.

Hope your Sunday is at least as successful as mine has been and that your week is even better!
