I am truly a cruel and ineffectual mistress. I set the above rules for myself this morning and had a pretty productive day, but didn’t put out as I had hoped. I have not sent out said manuscript. I am nearly half-done with my final read (and I mean it this time). I sent out a short for potential reprint, signed two contracts for short stories…and I also failed to follow my self-imposed restrictions on three occasions. The ponies, at least, are still waiting for their pets.
Tomorrow is, after all, a new day. Watch out, ponies…I mean, manuscript!
