I got the first set of images for the story cover. We are focusing on the heart imagery, but I asked the designer, my friend Marcy Rae Henry, to add a bee and maybe a corn husk rope, which were key parts in the story. I am not picky, since the artist is doing me a solid. Here is that short story draft, if you missed it: https://www.barrioblues.com/un-blog-de-writing-musings/finally-finished-my-novella-draft
I am paying the editor this weekend if I can, and my other friend who is editing the story collection. I hope to get at least something out before Christmas.
That's all I have because I need to grade. I am at Starbucks with my son, trying to get some work done. Plus, I have been battling a cold, and my energy is low.
On a high note, the damn draft of my novel finally posted. The WiFi gods can be such bastards sometimes, but here you are: The Harvest.
Here's to writing and publishing progress and to the mother fucking WiFi gods. #Resist
