OK. I have been waiting on word that an article that a magazine is interested will buy it (the previous editor was bvery interested and then the editorial staff changed).I have also been scanning some printed pages from my Brother Word Processor into the computer via a program called Readiris. I have finally been able to figure how to use it the best, but it's not a perfect program for scanning printed pages.So I have one short story scanned. I just have to scan the other one (which is twice as long) into the computer before I submit that manuscript. The short story I scanned today pointed out a couple of errors I have missed. So a couple of pages to reprint on the word processor (sigh).so far I have written 300 words for the sci-fi novel today which stands currently at 95 pages and just over 18,200 words. I still have to go back to reworking a short story I have written and get that one ready for submission. I have various projects in the works. I just want to start getting paid for more written material when it gets submitted. I have decided to write a couple more poems before I pick some from the bunch to submit to a magazine later this week (I hope). That leaves me with some other short stories to revise and write. Finally, it leads me to a supernatural private detective novel I need to start writing (for submission to a publisher i need to decide is best suited for it).P.S. I need to call a magazine to ask where I can send a query for the new magazine they are starting (since I have finally found their phone number yesterday at the corporate web site).
