Well, I never made the 6th submission for May...

However, two for June already (okay, both resubmissions).

My productivity has not being great recently as I attempt to find a job by day and do my MOS exams by night... :)

The good news so far is that I have finally completed the first draft of my chapbook for International Day of Books.

I find it really difficult to judge my work - I can't read it as a story, but see instead an array of errors, poor character development, weak plot, dull prose... I have sent it to Inkpot for a sneak preview and I hope she will be brutally honest about it. I would hate my entry to be below standard.

If anyone has any useful tips for learning to judge your work, I would be grateful if you would share them. Thanks!

Good to see you back blogging! Judging your own work is always very difficult. Getting distance does help, although I know this can not always be possible when you are working to a deadline. Sometimes the story you don't like is the one that is most successful, so it is a very difficult thing to judge.
