Rejections and short-lists

Yesterday, I got finally got a brief rejection note from Strange Horizons for “The Golden Watch”. It took 49 days from start to finish and that is nearly twice as long as any other story I’ve sent them. I’d like to think it meant I got farther along in the process, but the one-sentence message […]

Flickr does this cool thing with photo tags. It shows the tag name in font-size relative to the frequency that the tag is used in a photo. To see what I mean, check out the tags page for the photos I have uploaded.

First flickr photoset

I uploaded one photo before going to bed this […]
