Good News/Bad News Returns

Yup, you guessed it kids, it's time once again for Good News vs. Bad News. Let's dive in and play!

Bad news: My online series, The Dark InSpectre, is still offline, completely absent from the Internet like it never existed.

Good news: I have recently registered the new url for when we start it up on the Wordpress blog, and the Wordpress theme is already chosen.

Bad news: It took a week and a half to get this done. I thought my editor was going to register the name, but she didn't, so I just did it myself. Also, for some unknown reason, she's not able to create the blog in the way she wants to, so she's waiting for some technical assistance. End result: we're still spinning our wheels.

Good news: I'm finished with my last round of revisions and I have sent in my crime novel to my editor (literally like 10 minutes ago).

Bad news: Now begins the tense, nerve-wracking period of waiting for feedback during which I convince myself that the past year and a half was a waste of time and my novel in fact sucks dirty bilge water (as opposed to the clean kind).

Good news: Maybe it doesn't suck?

Bad news: Just got a short story rejected.

Good news: Got some actual feedback which will help me revise the short story and make it better.

End tally: Good news 4, Bad news 4. We're all tied up. I have to say, though, sending in the novel outweighs everything else. But is that good news or bad news? Only time will tell...
