[writing] Stories out the door, et cetera

Two stories out the door last night. Both to requesting markets. One I wrote fresh to requirements, "Grindstone" at 5,100 words. The other is an existing piece from new-but-unsold inventory, "Down in the Ship Mines" at 3,000 words. (The second has already been accepted, by SQ Magazine.) Which is terrific, but I really need to up my short fiction submission game a little.

I also finished the Kalimpura copy edits and got them back to Tor. Started working on some forthcoming conference critique, and also about to launch into that aforementioned tight editorial read of Other Me.

Work work work. I love it.
