Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- August 13, 2012

Song of the Day: Free Me by Joss Stone

   Hello all! How about that weekend? I had a very productive one. First, I got a lot of reading done. I was actually able to finish a whole book, which (shamefully) hasn't been easy as of late. Second, I was able to attend my friend's wedding. And third, I organized my house. I have to stay on top of that last one because I'm very sentimental and it's hard for me to throw things out. Shows like Hoarders, freak me out and force me to get rid of junk. I don't think I'll ever be that bad, but still. I also got a chance to do some research for my novel. I'm still trucking along on my editing. How are you doing with submissions? It's never too late to get your work out. Wouldn't it be nice to have something published before the year's over?
