Sleepy, sleepy....

I figured that I would make a quick update before I pass out for the night! I am just super pooped today....

I spent a good portion of the day sending out submissions to a couple of different journals, including Wicked Alice, who just started accepting submissions for the next issue today (what can I say, I've been excited about submitting there all summer long!).

I also got to spend some time hanging out with my lovely boyfriend, who I am so proud of because he just landed a new job! He starts on Monday and I'm very excited for him!

Finally, I wanted to thank two of my friends, Nick and Katie, for asking me to be a bridesmaid in their wedding next year! I was so touched to be asked, thanks you guys!

Okay, so this entry doesn't seem like a whole bunch of shout-outs, I also wanted to update and tell everyone what I'm currently reading. I'm not far enough into the book to be able to decide if I like it yet, but I'm reading a book called The Nature of Monsters by Clare Clark. The book is set in 18th century England, so it has a kind of Victorianish, Bronteish, Dickensish feel to it. I have a feeling based on this description alone that I am going to probably like it! Also on-tap to be read because I'm in a very fairytale mood is Briar Rose by Jane Yolen. I found this book on a whim while doing a book search at the library, so I hope it's pretty good. And I definitely hope that what I'm reading helps me get some more inspiration to write new stuff!

Hey Melissa,

There's nothing wrong with a few shout-outs :)

Congrats to Tony on his new job. That's excellent news!

And let me know about Briar Rose...I've had my eye on that particular book, but wasn't sure if I'd like it...Maybe you could post a little review when you're done?
