Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Monday Odds and Ends

Today’s post contains a number of quick updates.  (Ready, set . . . go!)

First, Milwaukee Brewers SS Alex Gonzalez, after being placed on the 15-day DL on May 6, 2012, found out that he tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL); Gonzalez will now be out for the entire year.  This might not seem so bad, except for the fact that Gonzalez is the third Brewers player to go down with a season-ending injury, joining first baseman Mat Gamel and pitcher Chris Narveson on the long-term disabled list.

Second, the Wisconsin recall primaries are tomorrow, May 8, 2012.  Please get out there and vote; remember that in the 21st district, the only real Democrat is former state Senator John Lehman.  In the gubernatorial primary, the four real Ds are Tom Barrett, Kathleen Falk, Doug LaFollette, and Kathleen Vinehout.

Third, I’m attempting to broaden my horizons regarding digital publications, as I’ve joined a workshop toward that end.  While I still hope to find a publisher (or at least an agent) this year, it’s important to learn everything I can about e-publishing in case I do decide to go that route.

That’s about it — now, I’d best get back to editing (as a non-fiction manuscript I’ve been working on with two writers is due to be turned in later this week).
