Attention, all readers!

Last week was boring, at least on the book front. Still incredibly pleased with SA, but until Leticia writes back with news about those other manuscripts of mine, or something comes out completely out of nowhere, I don't think there's going to be a lot of new for a few weeks.

But I do have a bit of publishing news. Last trimester I'd entered a short story of mine into Catch, which is my college's highly esteemed literary magazine, and I was picked! This Friday was the official publication date of that issue, and like with each issue, there was a publication party with finger food and writers reading their work. I got to read part of my short story, "He, She, and They", which is about a day in the life of a lower middle class couple. I wanted to read the whole thing, but unfortunately there was a five minute limit for reading time, so I simply read half, and some people told me I did really well. One of my friends phone-taped it (my own phone was dead), and I'll post it here as soon as she emails it to me. I can also insert a copy of the story if you want. :)

So that's a little not quite book/publishing news for you.

Weekly (Dis)Likes:

Like 1: The publication party. See above.

Like 2: I had a meeting with an advisor at the career center to work out a game plan for what to do concerning job looking from now til June. She says I have a good start, and the thing I should work on is building connections with LinkedIn to provide a greater job search. She's also going to send me a few links regarding job search sites, and we'll be looking over my resume as well. So glad I did it. (Yes Mom, I'll admit it.)

Dislike 1: I had my first quiz in my Mythology class this week. I'm nervous if I did well or not, because though I studied, I just hope I wrote everything down like I was supposed to.

And quote!
