Whew! What a week! First up are my submission counts for the week.
- Submitted: 2 – 1 set of poems that was solicited by an online journal and an essay to a print journal.
- Accepted: 0
- Rejected: 4 – 2 sets of poems, one with “ink” (I think), a story with comments and one of these doesn’t really count because the rejection is 8 months after I submitted so I had already pulled it as “assumed declined”
I managed to type up a poem from my notebook and I posted one on Thursday that was new this week as well. I also started on an essay topic, but I am still trying to find how to balance my new schedule.
I did find out I was accepted into the NC Writer’s Conference which I had been invited to back in July. Yay!
My first full week of teaching went pretty well although I was kind of running out of steam this morning so my class was short as was the class I was filling in for. I at least found one of the textbooks for the class I am filling in for so that on Monday I can be a bit more prepared for the two sections this particular teacher has.
On the weight loss front I am down .9 pounds which is almost all of the 1.3 that I went up last week. I’m not freaking out about this (especially since hubby and I went out to eat last night late for kind of a heavy dinner that was still within the ww flexpoints), but I would like to see myself moving back down instead of yo-yo’ing. I’m trying to always take the stairs when I’m on campus so maybe that will help. Did I mention my feet are killing me?
To finish up my crazy week I substituted for a teacher who is out who is teaching the same subject but with a completely different set of textbooks and different syllabus. It was a short class but I am on tap to cover both of her Eng 111 sections Monday so I have some time to prepare.
Speaking of time, what happened to it?
Have a great weekend everyone! See you back around next week with an author interview and perhaps a day of some writing tips besides our regular weekly posts. I’m always taking post suggestions so just let me know.
