#4136: How can a man have so much fun yet retain his sanity?

This coming week was looking to be exactly the same as the past month--one shift, with the promise of maybe getting another added. Well, I got a text from a coworker asking me to take his shift tomorrow, and I accepted, so at least I have that going for me. If I get another shift on top of that, that would be great. We'll see.

I'm gearing up to try submitting my novel for publication again, this time to an independent publishing house. (These guys.) The problem is, I'm suffering from a terrible case of low self-esteem right now; I can't stand anything I've written and feel like all I've ever done is write utter crap. I had a look at the stories I picked for Hypnogogia, for example, and felt like they were almost universally worthless dreck, and despaired.

Ah, the soul of an artist. *sigh*

Still, if I'm going to make any money on my writing, I have to find ways to get the stuff published, and this certainly seems like a reasonable place to make a second attempt. At least, they don't sound like the kind of place that will reject me because I don't vote the right way. (How would they know? Do a firkin' Internet search. Jeeze louise.)

Here's hoping I feel a little more optimistic tomorrow.
