Short Stories and Mis-typed URLs

I've been working on short stories to submit to GlimmerTrain in the hopes that I'll get some credible feedback on my writing at some point. Both are off-shoots from my current story lines. I'm not sure if I'll ever figure out this writing thing, but if I don't write my head stays in a state of chaos. This summer will be interesting as I'll be picking up some free-lance work that will eat up the majority of my "free" time, but I need the cash, so Jess will have to wait.

Anyway, now where was I going with this? Oh yes! I was looking for some information regarding a potential agent and accidentally mis-typed their URL by adding typing an extra letter. Not that this is normally a problem but I was at my regular job when an inappropriate Asian site of a "male persuasion" popped up on my screen and I couldn't get the browser to shut properly. So, power off the wireless, run scans galore, and now I'm back on and hopefully virus-free, but we'll see. It may be time to backup my data and rebuild my laptop from scratch.

I've also been researching Vitamin D deficiency which is common for "women of a certain age" and which I now apparently have. That also leads to interesting odd pages popping up once in awhile. And being that I'm paranoid, I have to shut things down and do scans right away. Wonder if craziness comes with Vitamin D deficiencies? Hmmm...

Anyway, I'm hoping to have a lead on an editor soon. I missed out on getting to RT to meet MaryJanice and try to sponge knowledge off of her, so I'm hoping to get to the next SIC conference that's anywhere in my area while submitting stories to GlimmerTrain and other competitions.
