[writing] A little bit of this, a little bit of that

The review I recently wrote of Mary Robinette Kowal's Glamour in Glass has been accepted by the requesting market with modest revisions. (I'm even getting paid!)

My lost colony steampunk religious novella, "The Stars Do Not Lie", has been accepted after a rewrite request by Asimov's.

Yesterday I managed to bang out a 4,200 word first draft of "The Woman Who Shattered the Moon". I had told myself, "4,000 words" before I dove in. Interestingly, I rather disliked the story at first and wondered if I was going to have to ditch it and start over. By the time I was done with draft, I liked it a lot. I'll have it off to the requesting market by next week. Once again, we learn that my writing subconscious is smarter than I am.

Rewrites have been submitted on novelette "You Will Attend While Beauty Awakens", though I don't yet have final editorial response. Over the next day or so I'll fiddle yesterday's short story draft, then send it back in. Plus I expect to be on final revisions to Calamity of So Long A Life by Friday.

Not a bad week so far.
