And again. And again, and again, and again, and again.  
Sorry, disappeared again. So what else is new, right? I just wanted to point out that I'm not dead. Someday I'll really get this journal going again. This semester has just been killing me. I've hardly seen my IRL friends and my writing has slowed to a crawl. I'm still doing it, though, and I've had a ton of ideas so far. Just... waiting for things to slow down.

In the meantime, I've kept up with my New Year's resolution to submit writing every month. So far I'm still waiting on responses for all but two markets. The two that responded were both form rejections, and they were for really, really short pieces. One was 156 words (tiny!) and the other was a poem I wrote on a whim. I don't usually write poetry, so I definitely wasn't crushed to get that rejection. I have no idea how to gauge if my poems are decent or horrible since I'm not much of a poem reader in general.

At any rate, all of my average length short fiction is still out there. The 156 word poem has had three rejections over the past two years. It's also the only piece I'd sent out prior to 2011, and out of the two rejections it received, one was personal and very encouraging. So even though I'm not sure if it will ever find a home, it was nice to have a high end editor tell me I'm a good writer. I guess we'll see if anyone else thinks so as I go down this road. I'll keep this empty, quiet journal updated. And hopefully I can get back to reading my friend pages, so that I can build up a community again. I miss having a place to share, but at least I have a real life writing group now.

Anyway, in May I'm free, and I'll probably be back then. If you're one of the few wondering where I've gone, expect me then. I'll try to get back to reading and commenting sooner, but life is chaotic. A month left of school, and three major assignments due soon. Ugh. Bye for now!
