good times bad times


Ages ago, I submitted a proposal for a novel to Alyson and I finally received word on whether or not they accepted it. They didn't. Oddly, I feel very indifferent about this news. Y'all may think I'm trying to save face, or sound stoic, but no, I'm really not surprised. A few days after I sent the proposal I opened my partial manuscript, reread it and thought, I should've waited until I'd written a few more chapters. It wasn't a half-assed proposal by any means, but a few more chapters would've shown more character development and a better idea of where the book was heading. A few weeks ago I was exchanging emails with my friend Andrew and said something like, "If my proposal gets rejected I won't be too upset, because then I won't have the pressure of having to write a book on my own."

I guess the universe was reading over my shoulder and made it so. Maybe I'm not meant to write a book on my own yet. Besides, this was the first Timothy J. Lambert novel I've put Out There so far. And I've only submitted it to one publisher. I hardly have room to act like this is a big tragedy. And the editor who rejected me was so kind that I can hardly call it a rejection. He praised my dialogue, my abillity to control the direction of a story, and said that I'm obviously a very good writer. He also said that if I worked on my novel more and wanted to submit it again, he'll be more than happy to take another look. You can't beat that kind of rejection. I thought about not mentioning this news, but this journal is meant to chronicle the good times as well as the bad. So, there you go; I suck. Yay!

So, this means I get to focus my attention on the Timothy James Beck book that we've started writing. And I've recently been inundated with erotica by Richard Labonte for BEST GAY EROTICA, which means I have over thirty short stories to read and rank by the end of the month. (If you submitted a story, please don't tell me. Bylines were removed so I can remain impartial.) Not to mention a side project that Becky and I have recently begun. And then there's that non-fiction idea that I've been working on, where I'll write about—

Whoops! It's time to feed Rex!
