Heh. Who knew? Maybe that expensive Criminology degree will pay off after all. Getting into his head will be a challenge but an irresistible one, I'm guessing.
A long weekend coming up and I'm going to make time to write more Tanner. Yeah, I've got editing projects to keep on too, so I'll have to manage my time well. I do well with days in and days out: running all my errands at once then staying in to work and write. Helps me focus.
The rest of the Writers in Paradise workshop was so worthwhile. Not only the critique from the faculty but the other students in our group were thoughtful and giving and had great suggestions. And having that writers energy all around was inspiring as well. For many of us dealing with the real world, it's hard to remember that some people do value intellectual work and achievement in writing and take creative work seriously.
Got three rejections this week: one from Zog's Notebook, two from StorySouth but one of those was "close, but not quite" with a helpful comment. Maybe the Tanner story will go there next.
