My day started very pleasantly with an acceptance from Every Day Fiction. Then I went to my new temp job, which was weird because it's also my old temp job, from way back before I moved up to Pennsylvania, almost exactly two years ago now.
In fact, I am sitting in the exact same cubicle that I was sitting in, doing the exact same thing I was doing then, when I conceived the character Kristof who has appeared in "The King's Messenger" in Renard's Menagerie #5 (YES! I managed another plug!) and who is the main character in The Weredeer. This job is even the reason Kristof has that name--every time I typed the name Christopher into the data entry program at work, it ended up shortened to Christoph, which I found appealing.
So all day I've had the unsettled feeling that I would hear back one way or another about The Weredeer. Mundania Press has had it since they opened for subs on December 1 and I'm expecting to hear back from them pretty soon anyway. Today would be a poetic day to get a rejection (or acceptance, please please please), but Life Isn't Like Books. Still, there's five hours left in today.
