After an awesome conversation with a good friend of mine, I've come to an earth-shattering decision. Okay, okay. Maybe it's not that big a deal, but it makes sense.
No more blogging/posting about submissions.
For one thing, it builds unnecessary hype. I want this blog to be a place of positivity and endless enthusiasm for writing, not a hub for pity parties if I report "fallen through" leads. Secondly, what kind of position does that leave an agent or editor if they happen to visit my blog after the fact? Real awkward, I'd say. For us both.
Whatever I've said recently about submissions, please disregard. I'm turning a new leaf over. The only exception to the rule is if I land a contract. Savvy?

Now, I'm curious about what you all think of Remakes! I for one think, if you can make it better, go for it. If it's already great, leave it be. Even as big a Spider-Man fan as I am, I felt the original films missed something, something that this new beginning is chock-full of. And do I spy Sally Fields in there? That alone is epic win!
In a word: Amazing!
Also, a childhood favorite PC game of mine will be getting the "reboot" treatment. I groaned at first, but then I saw this trailer. And was "virtually" blow away.
Is it true? They've made the iconic Lara Croft look proportionally realistic? And with that bow, it gives the game a Hunger Games feel to it. Don't you think? And all those wrecked ships from different time periods washed up on the same shore? Yes, please! I'm gonna play it.
After all, don't our stories look better after a redraft?
Tomorrow I'm posting my first entry for The Rule of 3 Blogfest. Come and share in the adventure of three young occupants from the outpost of Renaissance!
I'm David, and you folks on twitter rock!
