Was searching online for my dad’s obit today, and found a notice that my short story collection, The Second Time Around had been longlisted for the Serena McDonald Kennedy Award for Fiction in 2016. Sure wish I’d have known before now. Anyway, three years later it was still a bit of welcome news.
Up and at it early today. The revisions started out a bit rocky, but I think I managed some quality work before I quit. We’ll see, tomorrow. Should come to the end of the long piece before the weekend. Hope so. I’d like to abandon it again for a bit before looking over the final (or what I hope to be final) revisions.
Leaving for Albuquerque on Saturday. Should be a pretty drive down through the valley. Gonna try and relax a little, get in some extra reading time.
Don’t know why, but this week feels longer than most. Been thinking it was Thursday most of the week, and wasn’t right a single time until tonight.
