So this upcoming week I'm going to head down to Cuba for vacation. Really looking forward to it. It has been many, many years since I last had a real vacation. I need it.
What this does mean? No writing for the next two weeks, what with the vacation prep and then the vacation itself. So, before I leave I should take stock of where I am so that when I come back I'll be ready to get right back into it.
I have one story still with the Tesseracts people. I have two more stories written to the second draft level that I'm waiting for feedback on. It seems at this point that all the people I rely on to give me feedback are buried under one hardship or another. I'm not complaining at all, for I understand what their going through and my needs in definitely come second. It may be a good idea to start looking for a local writer's group in order to get some feedback. I don't want to start posting them online as I want to try selling to traditional markets first, and if they're available online the chances of a sale drop off to zero very quickly.
Speaking of vacation, I'm thinking I'll hit some of the local sci-fi conventions this year. So far the plan is to go to Ad Astra, Polaris and SF Contario. We'll see what happens.
See ya in two weeks. :)
