Write, Submit, Write, Submit…


ImageYou’ll be proud of me, Gentle Reader. I said I was going to submit a few stories before the big startup of NaNoWriMo, and I’ve begun the task! Kind of a clearing of decks in order to make way for this novel thing. So just now I submitted a story that I feel pretty positive about. I’ve got two or three more I want to send into the ether before nightfall, but I really need some lunch. Cover letters make me hungry.

Do you like my typewriter? I got it at a yard sale a few years back. It has a ribbon in it, (all dried out, naturally), but I think I could actually get it to work if I could get the keys to clack smoothly. They are kind of sticky with dried ink. Some Edwardian fool was lax in maintenance. and suffered for it, surely. Who knows what great novels and/or poems were written with this machine? I like to imagine who used it, all those ages ago. Sometimes when I’m feeling frivolous, I slide the carriage just so I can hear it “ding”! Odd things make me happy.

Well, my faithful, I must depart for the moment. There’s salami and provolone in the fridge, and one sub bun left in the bread box. They call to me. I’m sure you understand. 🙂
