A 71 day rejection from Strange Horizons. Very close - thought it interesting, well done, good narrative voice, etc - but still passed on it. Not close enough, I guess. Hmm.
I'm currently painting our downstairs bathroom. OK, not this moment (taking a break between coats). It's very blue. This is a bit startling to me, who grew up in a white walled house for the most part. I like it, I think. It's called Sounion Bay. All we need now is a stencil of the Temple of Poseidon on one wall, and we'll be in business.
