Break Time

I'm crushing a tax return. And eventually it twists my head into such a tight little spiral that I have to take a break. I hadn't googled in weeks, so I went and looked for anything on "Re\Creation." Nothing substantive, but two nice mentions and one so-so mention. The latter is by a Finnish reader, so I think something was lost as the individual couldn't find a plot in the story. The reader said the writing was nice but that it wasn't about anything "new." Well, no. So little is.

But I'll take my other two mentions, one which said "Re\Creation" rounded out the issue nicely and an Australian one that gave it 4 out of 5 stars, which wouldn't be so hot except the person gave everything else in the issue a 3 or 3.5 out of 5. What can I say? I was flattered they liked it the best of all the stories in the issue.

Now, about that tax return...

Hey, I'd be pretty pleased with that. Your story's out there, and people are reacting well to it. Analog is a major, major market and this is your first appearance on that scene.

It's always hard when you work so hard and put so much into something, and the reaction of the world is this sort of delayed, very minor, blip-on-the-screen burp, and then silence. Getting very little attention is pretty normal, so I guess what I'm saying is I'd groove on those positives because that's what they are.
