|A peek into my backyard|
And, amen for cooler temperatures and less humidity! So yes, bring on autumn! I am so ready.
There has been no movement on our house -- we've had two or three showings during the entire summer. One couple is really interested, but they just put their house on the market, so it will most likely be weeks before they sell theirs.
On the writing front it's been quiet. I did manage to revise a chapter book I had sitting in my files and am waiting for feedback from my writing coach. I was planning on self-publishing it, but was surprised to receive a message from a publisher that is interested in seeing it.
This happened as a result of me posting about it on the Writer's Cafe forum on the kboards.
Of course, it doesn't mean that anything will come of it, but it's still really cool that they reached out to me. I will be sending them the first three chapters, but if they pass on it, I'm not submitting it elsewhere. I'll be self-publishing it.
As far as haiku go, I have one that will be appearing in the fall issue of Modern Haiku, and yesterday I sent a submission to The Heron's Nest. It's the only submission I have out at the moment. Fall always seems to inspire haiku though, so hopefully I'll have more poetry to submit soon.
I also have a YA Fantasy short story that I will be sending out for critique. I think I'm going to try putting it in Kindle Unlimited once it's ready. I know shorts don't bring in a lot of money, but even just a dollar here and there will be exciting. And, I have to start somewhere, right?
I just want to get my stuff out there!
Oh, I finally sent out my application for The Haiku Foundation registry. My poet profile is already up, so that's fun! You can check it out here: G.R. LeBlanc Poet Profile.
Well, that's about it for now. Happy September everyone and I leave you with a haiku!
