Here’s yesterday’s list for the weekend:
Give 2 more people feedback. Check. Edit “Monster in Manhattan.”Check. Edit my cover letter.Check. Figure out which other four magazines I’m submitting my story to since I’d already picked one.Picked five, couldn’t use three. Found another one I couldn’t use. Picked another story for for a flash fiction magazine only to find they’re currently closed for submissions. Found one that is a bit absurdist and submitted a story that honestly wouldn’t be appropriate for any other lit magazine I’ve ever seen but just might fit there. Two more submissions to figure out. Rework my cover letter four times.Didn’t need a cover letter for one magazine. Reworked it for my other submission. Likely two more reworks to go. Attempt to send my reworked cover letters to the correct magazines along with my story.Again, three down, two to go.
Once I get that done there are three more assignments to the online course, but I’ve looked over them and from what I can tell, they’re manageable. If I can figure out the last couple of submissions tomorrow, I feel confident I can finish the rest in time. Of course, that'll have to be worked around the fellowship thing with mom in the morning and volunteering in the library in the afternoon. I'm going to be so thankful to be shelving tomorrow and listening to my book.
