Library of Congress paperwork

CRAVE THE HUNT
ANGEL HUNT

Czech lessons

Undone:
1 SDR blog post
Penny’s Dreadfuls stories

Unexpected Additions:
Anthology invites (started work on the stories)
Outlines for several projects
Hired to write for THE HEALTHY HOUSECAT
Real progress submitting backlog of stories
Trip to Maine, resulting in 300+ direct mail prospects
Site job in CT, resulting in 75+ direct mail prospects
DIXIE DUST RUMORS mailing

Disappointments:
Not enough hours in the day
OLD-FASHIONED DETECTIVE WORK still not released
due to difficulties on publisher’s end.

Successes:
Getting away from UHaul once and for all!
