Upping the Word Count

I had to up my That Kind of Magic word count once again as I’ve gone over my intended goal yet again. I started this story out with the intention of submitting it to a short story anthology. They wanted no more than 8000 words. Well, I’m over 30k now. No, I’m not complaining. I wish there were a way to make it 75k. I’ll settle for 40-50k though. I just want to finish it. I’m itching to get it submitted somewhere.

I also have a few other short stories that I originally sent off to Woman’s World, that I want to polish up and submit, maybe to The Wild Rose Press .

Today I made the decision to post on the Whiskey Creek Press blog on June 11th. I have absolutely NO IDEA what I’m going to blog about. Everyone seems to have so many good things to share and I’m not exactly full of ideas, wisdom and/or wit. But I have some time to come up with something. If nothing else, it’ll give me a chance to promote Finally Home which’ll be released on June 1st. In the meantime I’ll check out what other bloggers have to say.

So, the long weekend is over and its back to work. It was partially relaxing, and we found a second car to replace the Van O’ Death which still hunkers out in our driveway, waiting for a tow truck to take it far far away. I can taste freedom again! And its sweet.
