radiumgirl: (holly)
Today was slightly disappointing on the "Get-the-Eff-Out-of-the-Donut-Hole" front, so after I slept off my migraine, I decided to work on my writing submissions. Hot Metal Bridge has a deadline coming up on November 12th and I'll be posting excerpts from whatever I ultimately decide to submit as I do my revisions.

That was actually today's mission: to choose which piece to edit. I think I have one chosen, but I'm not positive yet. In the meantime, I found this. "Radium Girl Says She's Sorry." I have zero recollection of writing this, and I'm not sure if that's awesome or kinda scary, but I think I might submit it to Johnny America (one of my favorite literary magazines, has a real appreciation for the demented and I'm-not-sure-if-it's-okay-to-laugh-at-this works floating around today). I think it's a slightly unhinged look at my writing process. My only concern is that is isn't nearly as funny if you don't have the knowledge of the background of the characters I'm writing about. For that very reason, I will not be providing you with their backgrounds, but if your curiosity is peaked, I'll be more than happy to hold a Q & A in the comments.

And seriously, if it doesn't work, let me know. Ex-roommate Chrissy is my one of my best advisors when it comes to my writing because she doesn't mind pointing out, "You're a freak, you know that?"

I'm a killer. I kill people. It's what I do. )
