My youngest son got a job offer. He's been out of work since the beginning of January (laid off along with 250 other people). Though he's been interviewing a lot, this is the first legitimate offer he's had. Finally.
I managed to get nearly eighty pages of edits done for a friend; got my non-fiction submission ready to go; read a chapter in the review book; blogged - it was a good writing day.
At least up until I got an e-mail rejection of my manuscript. Sigh. But it is just one more to add to the pile and proves that I am out there, trying, submitting, working at my art.
So overall, a good day. And overall, a good month. Here's to March being even better.

Tips and Teasers: Make a list of words that sound good in your ears. They might be onomatopoeic (buzz, sizzle) or simple words that suggest particular emotions or qualities. Use three of them in a paragraph.
