As any author knows, you had better steel yourself to getting these. I am actually a little excited, because it just shows that I HAVE been submitting, and that it is plenty time to submit my proposal again, somewhere else!

On the more actual plus side, in the mail today also was my 401K quarterly report, which is doing well.
