"But the biggest surprise, honestly, was a negative thing. A little while after getting the call that Hive had won the Brittingham Prize, I went through a pretty intense phase of hating the book and thinking it was terrible. That caught me completely off guard, because wasn’t this the big win? Wasn’t I was supposed to be celebrating the moment I’d been working toward for so long? I don’t mean to imply there was no joy, because I was over the moon! But when I sat down to do my final round of edits and got ready to commit to the manuscript’s final version for typesetting, second-guessing and doubt swooped in out of nowhere."

Fun word prompt and poem today for this week's Wednesday Poetry Prompt. I actually took it the Star Trek route.

Just learned that the Writer's Digest Shop is having a Black Friday Sale in July today (and today only). This means that if you use the coupon code BFJULY40 at checkout, you'll save 40% on most products in the store.

Also learned that the Writer's Market 2016 is now available for pre-order, which means you can be the first on your block to receive a copy (usually even sooner than me).

Coincidence? Probably, but today would be a great day to reserve a copy.
