I haven’t received the rejection letter yet, they wont send it till the 31st, but I am out of the running for publication into Glimmertrain. Ishi has bombed in the eyes of the editors.
For the ten minutes for ten days writing exercises, I have created a list of subjects to write about (this too is part of the exercise). It was really off the cuff. I usually have a million things I want to write about, but as soon as I am asked to write a list of what I would like to write about, I go blank. I’m not too excited about my list, but it doesn’t matter, the point is to just go with it.
- Polar Bears*
- The History of my desk
- Touch (from a real short story idea)
- Joan of Arc
- The Appalachian Girl
- The Health Mines
Yeah, that one about the desk, that’s going to be fun. The ones with the asterisks means I’ve already done the writing.

*Update: I did a ten minute write on all of these ideas. Booyah!
