Siren Countdown

I don't post word count progress, because I write so slowly I'd just get depressed.  That said, I'm feeling pretty good tonight.  With many apologies to the beta readers of my siren story, I think I finally thrashed the nasty middle bits into acceptable shape.  I'll know for sure when I read it tomorrow.  But don't worry.  I don't plan to inflict the rewrite on you.  Promise!  Especially since it appears to have grown a hundred words in the process.  *headdesk*  Action is short; motivation, long.
I also finished a short short story for the York Emporium's "Yesterday, I Will" contest.  Actually, I finished the day after SciFi Saturday, but since I usually write far too long (see para. 1 above), I felt compelled to do lots of sanity checks before submitting.  The results were encouraging, so into the email it will go.
I also know what I'll be writing for my Samhain Publishing blog on Friday: "Friends Don't Let Friends Publish America".  After all that's been said and all that's been written and all that's been published on the Web and elsewhere about vanity presses, you'd think there wouldn't be a writer left who didn't know the score.  Wrong.  You know the old saw: "Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it"?  Seems there's always someone who never knew the past well enough to forget it.  Don't know that my blogging about it will help, but I figure it can't hurt.  Will post the link when it goes live.
Cheers and smiles,
