It's so hot here in Akron, people are starting to built trains out of ears of corn. They were 6 for $2. What can I say?
Right now one of my heaviest cats is laying in my crappy desk jet printer. I can hear the printer creaking under her. She declines my suggestions to move elsewhere.
Today I graded a stack of papers in a laundromat, whilst washing some big stuff that wouldn't fit in my machine at home. I wonder why it's so easy to grade with total distractions, but none that really interest me, when it's so difficult to grade without distractions, or with fun ones.
We are getting some really good stuff for BOR. Like, gasp when you open it type stuff. I was thinking we'd hold off on acceptances for a few weeks, but I'm getting antsy. Will keep you posted.
Steel Toe Books is now taking submissions!
I finally went out and shopped this week, and it wasn't that bad. My philosophy is to do it really fast. That way it's over, and then you just have to figure out where to hang stuff.
I have a new submission brewing (as well as that new book ms). As soon as the next two weeks are over, I'm going to kick it into high gear.
