WOW - some very good news for me

I saw this listing for a call for several editors and so I joined the discussion group and put my two cents in for some story ideas for the upcoming new magazine that is going to run next year and I got one of the editor positions - how cool is that?

I am looking forward to posting my call for submission for my particular storyline and hope to see you all submitting your stories - not only to me but to the other editors too - the more the merrier.

Be on the lookout for the calls - come visit the site and see whats happening - E :)

I've actually met Jacky from this company and have had contact with several authors that they represent - lots of interesting posts regarding the publishing world as well as the agent world (all have been editors for publishing companies and now are agents - so know both sides of it) -

I have posted all blog links under the links section on my blog - thanks - E :)

Here it is labor day and I'm slaving away at work (there is plenty there) and trying to concentrate on only work to build up my lines but it isn't happening. Again, thinking of a ton of different things I could be doing, but I must persevere with the work, need to build up the funds to hopefully move from this wretched house - the one full of snakes, mice, and other critters that tend to not show face but make up for it in all the noises they make.

I have started a new story and goal is to do 35,000 words by the end of the month and yet I have no direction on the story, had a prompt from the Writer's Digest site that a friend was a good idea and so I went with it. I have an opening scene, some backstory a little bit and nothing else - pizzazz and flat - good combination. Hopefully something will come.

I don't have a home for it yet but maybe that will come along and inspire me to really write the thing - I think doing it this way makes me think differently on the story; having a home first, makes me want to write the story and all kinds of ideas flow; not having the home first, just makes it more like work - oh well - Maybe tonight I'll look for a contest to put it with so i can write, edit, revise, et cetera on a timely schedule -

Well back to work - ya'll have productive days - see you soon - E :)
