I’ve been kinda busy lately, but I thought I would give a short update.
Last week my son competed in the state solo and ensemble competition. He didn’t play a solo, but his quartet scored a one. (For those who don’t know, band scores are like golf scores; lower is better.) I went along as a sponsor, and since I rode the bus rather than drove myself, I got some reading done.
I’ll try to post reviews soon, but I’ve been devoting what free time I’ve had to fiction writing. I’ve got three stories in slush piles. With one exception, which got a very nice rejection of the send-me-something-else variety, all the other stories I sent out earlier this year have placed. I need to get some more stuff finished and out the door. I’m hoping things will settle down next week.
Why not this week, you ask. Summer classes started today, so normally I would be into a routine by the end of the week. However, this weekend is my annual pilgrimage to the holy land, also know as Robert E. Howard Days. I’m going down on Thursday afternoon (and in my car since my wife needs hers this weekend. It will be an adventure.)
So look for a writeup on Howard Days next week. If I can squeeze in a review before then, I’ll do it. Otherwise, they’ll hit after I get back.
