I know I totaly suck

Things are... well odd.  I haven't had any tim eto do anything for the past few weeks.  My brain is going in a million differnt ways at once.  My writing is all over the place and the whole self promotion thing?

Well I was never good at that to start with. 

Anyway this is the link to the story that was published about two months ago LOL 

The Hampden County Hyenas are a hockey team that is a bit unusual. They really are hyenas-or boudas. Much like werewolves they are both man and beast-a perfect fit for hockey. It is a rebuilding year for the team and it's time to hunt for a new recruit.

A humorous paranormal fantasy short story- 3103 words

Hi, Bodge!
Sounds like a great story! You're/I'm very lucky that I bought a Kindle a few weeks ago, since I could download a copy. No time to read right now, but I will.

BTW, you don't totally suck. Like, I mean, do your big toes suck? Thought not. ;-P

Re: Hi, Bodge!
nope my big toes are both good. *grin*

Do you like the kindle? I've been useing Kindle for PC for a while now and that isn't bad. I have two stories up at amizon now - they hyena story and a fairy story. Both could use reviews, I haven't been good at getting people to review my stuff *sigh*

Re: Hi, Bodge!
Hi! I went back to Amazon and ordered The Box of Cows, which I vaguely rmember reading as a work in progress. I know it was fun! I'll get to both stories as soon as I can!

Recently I've been flooded with email, largely from Broad Universe (pro female authors who write speculative fiction), Lost Genre Guild, How Many Pages Did you write..., and Written Remains. This has not left much time for working on WIP or reading other people's offerings--even if they are loaded on my Kindle.

To answer yur question, I really like my Kindle, and I am fairly sure that I would not like reading books via Kindle for PC. I sit and stare at the computer screen more than enough as it is. It's nice reading a surface that isn't backlit, and read from a object that you can take almost anywhere.

I promise to get to your stories soon! Right now, I'm finishing up Prof Tolkien's multi-hour Oxford lecture "On Fairy Stories"--on which I would not like to have been an Oxford study preparing for an exam! It's much more erudite and technical that I remember from my first reading decades ago. I think I've been losing brain cells in a steady stream ever since back then.

This explains those tiny gray ballbearing-like objects that occassionally roll down along my spine and then go pinging all over the floor and sidewalk. Contented sigh. It always a relief to find an explanation for strange phenomena,

I can't beleve I never replied...
Thank you for getting my stories! and any time you can get to them is fine.

I keep thinking about joining Broad Universe, but I never think about it at the right time. Now I am thinking about it at the right time, since it is July. So I should join.

Kindle for PC is basicly a PDF reader, it's OK but I'm not a fan of reaing on the computor really. I don't know how much I would like a kindle - I did try one out a few months ago and it wasn't bad, but I think I may want to stick with books on paper for now.

I think Prof Tolkien may have been a difficult teacher to have - he looked at myth and ligustics in a very... well I don't know how to expliain it excatly. I gues you know *his* way. LOL

Re: I can't beleve I never replied...
Well, I can't believe that I still haven't gotten to your stories. Frankly, I have yet to finish Tolkien's lecture! (For what it's worth, this has nothing to do with suddenly disliking the Kindle.)

I got sidetracked by joining Library Thing. See if you can see this page:

Anyway, I've spent about a week now setting up my profile and just starting to upload data on my books.

Re Broad Universe, they're very professional--in that many discuss contracts, their cover artists, what the editor is doing to their manuscript & their agents. Given how BU started and still is an organization for women writers of specfic, it shouldn't be a surprise to hear that many members report on book publishers, SF magazines or news articles which have have far more male authors than female or who write about more male authors than female. Lots of links to individual's blog entries and/or industry related articles. Notices about new venues for submissions or contests. And like that. Oh, and who is going to be at which con. (Most of those I delete unread. I get jealous because I can't go.)

For birthday & your story
I wanted to send you the LJ virtual gift of a hyena because of "Rebuilding Year" but I guess you've blocked gifts. Anyway, just another congratulations on your story. I hope that all is well with you and yours.
(Don't worry: not expecting an answer here).

Take care! I'm thinking of you.

I may have, I can't remember.

We are all tired and sore - we are sad but not devistated.
