I spent much of today relentlessly webbing and digitally imaging. It’s all a whole bunch ‘o fun, but my right wrist is suffering some serious RSI.
Most of my web site has been upgraded now, with a particular nod to the Harbinger section. I am most pleased with that one, as I have adhered to a very strict style. The rest of my site is very graphically intense, a little mish-mashy, and perhaps a little busy. But even so, it has that artistic busy-ness that still looks cool.
Aside from web designing, I lodged my application for a TAFE Cert IV in Web Design today. I have missed the first round of enrolments, but I remain confident of nabbing a place. The course should be cool – it will allow me to understand all the disasters I’ve created on my site, as well as provide valuable insight in forging an uber Shadowed Realms site.
I also received word that Countdown Macabre has been accepted by Antipodean SF – which brings my contribution to this great little Aussie zine to three and climbing. This flash story is also due to appear in Flash Shot in August.
Also on the writing front, I heard back yesterday from Scared Naked Magazine, regarding Victims of Circumstance – my first ever short story (and a damn fine one at that!). Apparently it went AWOL, but the editor very gallantly promised a 48 hour turnaround on my story when I resubmit it. I dutifully did this last night, and so I am holding my breath and hoping it is deemed suitable for publication with them.
The only major project left of immediacy is incorporating the final draft of Genesis Six into Disparate Whispers, and sending the ms off for the Hungerford Award. That should be done tomorrow in and around a major household cleanup (things have been left to slide now both Ange and I are buried up to our eyeballs in web site stuff – more on her site later).
