Even at the end of a good week, the weekend is welcome

And it was a good week. As I noted yesterday, I sold Wodehouse Murder Case. Coupled with selling Peace With Honor to the Monster Earth anthology, I feel more than capable of enduring a few months of rejection without wincing (I’d much sooner handle a few months of sales, but if that’s not to be, at least I’m ready). As to the writing:
•I went over half last week’s work on Brain From Outer Space, checking that the timelines of the different plot threads didn’t conflict, and to straighten out any little details. So far, everything looks fine.
•I rewrote Not By Honor Bound. As noted last week, I’ve amped up the magical aspects. Unfortunately, this also sucked out some of the personal drama. Next draft, obviously, I try to get them both back.
•I partially rewrote Never Call Up What You Cannot Put Down. It’s improved but I still don’t have a good ending.
•I got a freelance assignment to work on a series of children’s books, subject to how well I do on the first one. I drafted the book today (it’s 1,000 words so it didn’t take that long) and I intend to submit it on Monday.
