Lloyd Llyod Lylod

Never name a character Lloyd because for every time you type that name, you will type every variation but the correct spelling.  I've never backspaced so much in my life.

Lost and found

We went to the Bay area this summer and we found this turret in the Marin Headlands.  I knew I had to be inspired by this place, because it was super cool.  I finally figured out how to use in it a story I've been stuck on for like two years.  Score.

::taps microphone::

Well, hello there.

I've been busy this summer sending out submissions,  writing a query letter, and organizing the upcoming poetry club at the elementary school I work at.  And so many revisions.  On so many things.  Plus more on the newer-ish novel.

I've got four submissions out right now, a slew of poems which would be um... ::counts:: 10, and a short story. I just hope that the eventual rejection letters don't all come on the same day.  That would be kind.  Of no one's doing though but mine.  Heh.

So query letters.  They are a thing that may need more revision than the actual novel.  Which also still needs some cleaning up, but I decided years ago that it would be a forever project.  So I don't worry.

I'm also contemplating in a very small way, asking people to read it.  Can you imagine the gall in that!?  LOL  Only a very tiny part of me feels that way.

Thanks for reading!
