Been Focused on School
It has been a while since I posted, thanks to everyone who is still around. I have been focusing on school and working to finish my degree. I have also been working at my new job building a new IT infrastructure from the ground up. It has been fun working with my new, very small, team. I have learned a lot about setting up servers, maintaining security, and development. Lots of fun stuff.
Despite all that I have still been working on my writing. I am happy to say it is getting better and I have received the best rejection letter I have ever received from an Assistant Editor at Pseudopod.org. That’s right, I made sure to submit to them again after adding an extra section they mentioned would be nice to see. I was not disappointed. They basically explained that I she create a longer story based on what I have. They explained the mood and everything was well done and I loved that. They really got the story, I could tell that, now I just need to decide if I am going to stop writing short stories lol.
If you are wondering about what is happening with the Engineer and the Apprentice…Still working on it. I got stuck at chapter 11. Once I get this school out of way for the semester I plan on finishing another chapter or two on the story. I feel really confident right now after some of my recent rejections. I know that is weird to say though, I feel better now that my rejections are getting more personal.
This is J.R. Martin signing off. I hope we connect together again soon and my words reach you healthy and well.
