I have a way? Is that better than a plan?

I've gone through the not!Iron Man story yet again.

It doesn't suck as much as I thought it did. In fact, I'm back to pretty much loving it again. So many lines in here are just so golden that I'm having a hard time believing that it was me who wrote them. I've tweaked it a little more this morning (using permutations of the word "fiddle," when not referring to playing the violin, three times in a story such as this? Not on), and I think I'm going to call it "Piles of Cash and Killer Benefits." Seeing as, in this story, that title has more than one meaning, and yay for double entendres, right?

So. I'm going to format it. I'm going to check Baen's guidelines one more time. And then I'm going to ship it off to them. They're closing to subs at the end of the month, and if it passes slush, that should give me time enough before the end of September to send it to WotF if Eric and Mike decide to pass on it.

OKAY.

I've been remiss in flipping rejected stories lately, what with the writing jag. That little problem has now been taken care of, and the three (!) stories languishing on my hard drive are now either off to editors, or waiting for a snail mail sub to be shipped off tomorrow.

Go, me.

Now I really should print out a bunch of business cards for WorldCon. And figure out what else I need to take.

I'm hoping my normal Con-going wear of shorts/pants and tees will be acceptable. :/

Note to self:

When the instructions on the hair color say "Do not use on hair that is predominantly gray"? Might want to pay attention to that. Because now instead of having hair that's dark brown with a tint of red, it looks more like, well...

THAT. *points at icon*

Seriously. I was not going for the Pepper Potts look. It's all right, I guess, but it's a little, er, startling. Yeah. That's the word I'm looking for.
