Things. Stuff.

Currently reading The Fall of Hyperion, the award-winning sequel to the award-winning Hyperion. I’ve come across at least a couple “As You Know Bob” moments in the text.

Continuing to chug away at deadlines. Got a couple items off my plate, so I’m feeling pretty good about that. This week will be mostly dedicated to clubbing my stuff before I send it to Mr. Gunn for the workshop.

Now, have some honeydew.

    Jeremy, just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I’m Rose, and we’ll be together at the workshop :) Please don’t worry about your friend’s critique. If our stories were perfect, there’d be no need to come to the workshop, right?

    Also, readers can have wildly divergent opinions. What’s genius for one is stupid and useless for another. My friends who went to Clarion taught me this phrase: “Take what you need from the crit and move on.” It’s a very good mantra, I found.

    Hi there! If you’re referring to the feedback for my workshop pieces, my lament is not the feedback I received, but the lack of it. I’ve gotten more feedback from people since I posted, but when I wrote this post I was just feeling frustrated because I had gotten so little response.

    There are a couple things that are nagging at me about the stories, that I figure I should fix before I get to the workshop. But I’ve felt stuck on these fixes and turned to friends for help.
