Random Ramblings and Shameless Pimping

It’s October. October. Let me say it again. October.

October is my favorite month of the year. We have fall weather, leaves changing, the state fair and Halloween. We also are treated to nightly horror movies on various cable channels. There is trick-or treating and haunted houses, Halloween parties and candy corn.

Yup, October is a great month.

I’m trying to convince my daughter to be a mummy this year, but I don’t think it’s working. Last year she dressed up as Wednesday Addams and she played the part perfectly. Too perfectly. One of the candy givers asked us if she were okay when she walked off. The thing is, that is the way she normally acts…

I’m not going to say what I’m trying to convince my wife to be this year…J


So, how are you all out there?

Seriously, how are you, folks? Has life been treating you right? Let’s hope so.


Now, to the nitty gritty.

Some of you may recall some of my goals from the beginning of the year. The thousand words a day goal is still coming along nicely.

The submissions process has come along as well: 132 subs so far this year. That’s a hefty number.

Now, for the one thing I really wanted to accomplish: 50 acceptances within the year. I sit at 34, just 16 off the mark with three months remaining. I still have a little over 30 stories out there in Submission World. Cross your toes, fingers and other parts. I think the ride is just beginning.


Liquid Imagination appeared on The Funky Werepig this past weekend. Greg Hall and company gave John Miller and myself a warm welcome and a lot of laughs. Check out the show on podcasts at Talk Radio here:
