Had quite a rally in July, due in part, I think, to re-engaging with the Liberty Hall flash challenges, which always boost my energy and imagination. Some of my earlier subs emerged from the slush piles for rework and/or resubmission. Added a few book reviews. I also found a cool artist to help with my multimedia adaptation of A Taste of Honey, which should be finished next month sometime.
Bottom line, more writing, more submissions, and a pair of sales!
