No writing tonight. Instead, we went to the clinic and got our shots for the trip. Technically, no shots are required for Thailand, but they thought it would be a good idea to get vaccinated for tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, hepatitis A, and typhoid. Ow.

Because we were a good boy and girl they gave us lollipops. Mine was "artificial mystery flavor."

Speaking of ow... the post brought a rejection on the unicorn story, alas. At least Realms of Fantasy only took a couple of months to reject it. I'm not quite sure where to send that one next. It's already been to Asimov's, F&SF, Scifi.com, Strange Horizons, Interzone, Cidada, Polyphony, Aeon, Fantasy Magazine, and Realms of Fantasy. It's a young-adult coming-of-age story with unicorns and lesbians, so Analog is right out. Any suggestions?

On the other hand, I did finally get the contract for an anthology sale from last year. And I got a request to submit to a new webzine that's just starting up. Onward and upward.
