Yesterday (or early this morning, depending on where you are) there was a New Moon in Libra, the sign of the Scales. A New Moon is the beginning of a new cycle; the Full Moon is the culmination of a cycle. That doesn’t necessarily mean things start and end in two weeks, although it might. But it really depends on what project or goal is being started. It might take a month (a whole Moon cycle), or it might take those six months until there is a Full Moon in Libra.
In any case, I definitely got a taste of things. I had both good and bad news and some in-between. Very Libra, very balanced.
The good news: a short fiction piece of mine will be featured on the February 10th episode of No Extra Words.
The bad news: an agent who’d asked to read some of Changers gave me the “just didn’t connect” line yesterday.
The in-between: the small publisher looking at Changers acknowledged receipt and said it might take a few months to get back to me. They asked that I let them know if the status of the manuscript changes.
Also, I made great progress on the Peter edits yesterday and finished them up this morning. The manuscript is back with my editor now.
So, yeah, balance. Better to get good and bad news in a day than just bad. Hopefully there will be more good ahead as well.
