...revised two old poems and sent them out to a contest. The revisions were enough to make them new in my eyes, so I will count them as works #8 and #9 in my quest for 100 works in 2007.
This will be a busy week as far as writing (and every other aspect of my life) goes. I have two prose/fiction contests I want to enter - one by 3/9 (this Friday) and the other by 3/15, and I have barely started. But I think I can hammer something good out if apply myself early in the week. I work best under pressure, even if it is pressure I created by my own procrastination.
I am also working on final edits and setup for my book, My Own Brand of Blues. My publisher contacted me last week and the book is basically in production (yay!) - so I have to do my part and put the finishing touches on it. Most of my changes will be in formatting and reading it a million times - I'd hate for one spelling mistake to loom there on a random page in a manuscript I've had "finished" for 3+ years. I'm a little nervous about it all, since this is a part of the publishing biz that is pretty much new to me, but I'm ready to see where it takes me. It will be damn cool to be a published author with a book when it's all said and done.
Anyway, I might not blog for a few days, at least until all these loose ends are tied up. Until then, be good...
