In one more week I finally get to see Matthew! I haven’t seen him since April so this is wonderful! We have to get our marriage license in Dallas on Friday and see our officiating minister for the mandatory marriage counseling on Sunday. The next time I see him will be our wedding weekend in July. I am so glad I will have a week to goof off with him before he flies back to Pennsylvania. We’ll have to spend the last half of our “Honeymoon” week moving my stuff into the new apartment just across town, but at least we’ll be together. He will be on his own to move all of his things cross-country sometime during the third week of July while I’m working. Whatever weekend he comes in will be really tiring, but worth every back-breaking minute. We haven’t lived in the same city since I graduated Texas A&M University at the end of 2005, so I could not be more excited to actually be able to live with him.
In writing news, I sent my short story “Chosen” off to the Writer’s of the Future Contest, which has a July 1 deadline. We will see how that goes, but in the meantime I need to finish correcting my “City of Twilight” short story and resubmit it to the Baen’s Universe Bar new-author slush pile. I also need to finish my edits of David’s, Lauren’s, Mary’s, and Leia’s June postings in EAG. I’ve read through David’s and Mary’s stuff once, but I have yet to attempt formal edits. I guess I’ll do that once I get my market reports finished since those are due on the 15th.
