The bags under my eyes this morning were evidence of my submission goals these past couple of weeks. I sent a poem in for consideration, and am tweaking 3 short stories to submit next week (and the week after) to a couple of magazines and anthologies. I took an editing class a Writer House in Charlottesville, VA last weekend and had an excellent time as well.

I know. Editing, right? Nothing can make a writer either snore or quake in the shoes –depending on the circumstance. But really–the course was excellent and taught by the lovely Lisa Ellison. And because of her I felt inspired to join the Editorial Freelancers Association. I’m looking forward to improving my editing craft for my own writing and for when I edit for others!
