My dragons will not breed

Every time I try to produce a new color stripey, I either get an ordinary or my dragons show no interest in each other. Foo. Now I have to wait a week before trying again. At least I got a couple of the new ones.

Does anyone want to actually read my fiction? I chaff because I have not heard back from Dark Quest publishing (how long DOES one have to wait before deciding they're not interested and trying someone else?), and I begin to think it's rather pointless writing my own stuff, but damn it, it's what I want to write. I just hate writing in a void. I like readers. I mean, being published would be awesome -- but having an audience is what I write FOR. Everyone I know is either into fan fiction or I'm a terrible slacker and I don't produce as much return commentary as I should do in exchange for their kind beta commentary. *sigh*

My arm is hurting again. My therapist guessed (rightly) I'm not doing my stretches as I should.

I have determined that "they" are correct, and I need to substantially increase my workouts in order to see any further results, because currently what I do is only maintaining my weight, even when I struggle to keep myself in the 1200 - 1400 calorie area (and MAN, that's tough!). As such, I have been in the gym every morning this week thus far. Yay, me.

If anyone DOES indicate an interest in my work, I will post a semi-pornish short story here. Hell, I may post it anyway. Maybe someone will find it and enjoy it. It's even got a pseudo-plot.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

I grump because I am.

at least you got some new dragons

I know the writing worries. Has it been long enough to send a followup letter

It's been three months. That's why I was wondering how long is long enough to wait...

I started re-reading my NaNo from 2008 -- despite some stilted areas, it's actually not that bad. Hmmm. Maybe I can finish it sometime.

yeah that is a bit. I guess you have to judge based on their submission guideline estimates. If it's past that, it's worth sending a query.

I know the 'i must finish' this feeling too. Pokes damned space opera with a stick (knowing full well Samhain isn't likely to go for it)

I'll check the guides and see what it says. I always hate being a noodge...

It's not like this NaNo is actually publish-worthy, but I thought I might polish it up for self-posting, for anyone who wants to read it. It's just a frolic from my universe, although the main character becomes important later in the series.
