Odds, ends, etc...

I'm still a bit slow to the punch. A lot is happening and I'm catching up from last week.
As promised, here is the list of publishers I'm sending my own work to.

The Invisible College Press
Dialogue Publishing
Dragonon Inc.
Hill Street Press

I only found four last weekend that fit the category of what I've written. I also ran out of stamps and had to consider budgetary constraints. Postage, printing and materials ain't cheap.

Meanwhile, to help focus, I've all but abandoned Facebook. It's too much of a distraction and I enjoy screwing off there too much. It's like video games. I love them, but I don't have any room for them. As usual, once I swear something off, I get some bit that makes it tempting to go back. The twins I spent prom night hanging out with were diagnosed with MS a few years ago. I didn't know. Facebook can be very superficial. At best, it's just an introduction.

Anyway, they're doing an MS walk in DC this weekend and while I'm not going to dig back in, I think I can find twenty dollars to send for the walk. It's the least I owe them for taking the edge off what might have been a lonely and bitter memory. Really, why would I give a fuck about prom when I got to ride around, drinking wine coolers with two gorgeous twins? It was a wonderful night, not because it ended in some kind of awkward porno scenario, but they wanted to spend some time with me. Hell, they didn't even know it was the prom.

Tomorrow, I'll post some pages from the thing I'm working on now --which is more of revision/fine tuney thing than a new project. I'm at 50,000 words again. It will probably go 80 to 90 before it's finished, then we'll go back in. Since I've done this before, maybe it get easier and faster.

The new blog is fun, though so far, 304 hasn't added it to the list. I've sent a couple of requests to be added, but maybe I have to be discovered... (sigh) I'll never be a star.
