The Action Jackon Starts Tomorrow!

So tomorrow I go to a Yankee game, which means I get to see our new acquisition, Bobby Abreu, in action. Thursday I meet with my friend in NYC for one of our monthly drinking bouts, and after this I must (and will!) sober up in time to meet with my critique group. Then from Friday-Sunday I'll be Atlantic City, celebrating the 30th birthday of one of my best friends.

But wait. There's more. I received a rejection today from Edmund Schubert, the new editor at IGMS. Some of you may remember him as my last interview victim for my monthly Editorial Musings column. And while a rejection is always a rejection, the brilliant bastard did mention that he's willing to take another look at "The Song That Binds" if I tried to develop it more fully. Gee, I wonder what I'll do? Oh, I don't know. Maybe, just maybe I'll try to get this piece up to snuff, so I'll have a shot at being published in a magazine started by one of my favorite authors.

Yeah, I think I'll do that . . .but it doesn't look as though I'll be able to get started until Monday. Then the REAL ACTION JACKSON starts! :)
