This is the story of how we begin to remember

Nov 5th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

It’s very hard to struggle back into a rhythm of work after being flung out of it for so long. To anyone who says 5 days isn’t a long time, I say: clearly you have never truly been in this kind of rhythm. But we are clawing our way back to production. We got back […]



They said I probably shouldn’t fly with just one eye

Oct 20th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Progress is progressing! The print edition of Issue 12 is done! The 2nd proof arrived yesterday, and Kay and I both went through it with a fine-toothed comb for any little errors. Then I fixed up what we found, and today I converted the file to PDF, uploaded it and submitted for the third time. […]



Yesterday’s sunshine is faded

Oct 18th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Annoyingly, we’ve decided that we need to order a 3rd proof copy of the print edition. There are a few tiny problems that, if it was just one of them, we might leave it (as much as it would irk us), but together we can’t ignore them. Every one is just a little flaw in […]



And in a startled voice he says to what’s before his eyes

Oct 15th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

WOW so much to tell! First and foremost: the print edition of Issue 12 has been finalized! Today was another example of speediness by the printer: Submitted at 11:58 am, proof ordered at 3:26 pm, proof shipped at 4:46 pm. Less than 5 hours total. Brilliant. I gotta say: DAMN I am so pleased with […]



You’ve got a real type of thing going down

Oct 12th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Whew! What a weekend! The site was down for about 24 hours. This was due to some unforeseen (and still not completely explained) issues when moving the site to a new server. Our webguru Matt worked his butt off to get us up and running again. Thanks Matt! Let’s see. All editing for the LGBTQ […]



Sometimes you think you’re gonna get it

Oct 7th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Editing happened! We’re not finished, but progress was made. Hurrah! Today was Mad Communication Day. I must have sent a good 20-25 emails covering various subjects for the magazine. Mostly about Issue 12, although there were a few things about past and future issues as well. Kay also sent quite a few emails as she […]



Usually Kind To Smaller Man

Oct 5th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Stats! Now that we’ve closed submissions on our first year of issues, I went and counted up our Fiction submission totals. I found some very interesting things about our Male/Female submission ratios. These numbers disregard submissions that weren’t ever under consideration – i.e. submissions that were too long/too short, or were withdrawn by the writer […]



Smiles from the heart of a family man

Oct 3rd, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Despite the annoyances of the day, a lot was accomplished. The primary annoyance was with Adobe Acrobat, which we can’t afford. Kay had one of those ideas that’s so clever we both wondered why we didn’t think of it sooner. Rather than waiting until we had all the stories edited and formatted, we’re going to […]



I played around as well I was able

Oct 1st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

So much to do… so much to talk about… I’m barely awake after staying up past 1am to deal with the website issues and then actually get the new issue released. But there is much to blog about, so here I am again. First, congratulations to SirDayWalker for winning the Submission Guesstimate Contest! He guessed […]



Please don’t point and stare, we’re just technologically impaired

Sep 29th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

We had a little blackout tonight. A fierce rainstorm knocked out the power on our block. It was only about 10 minutes, but it did knock us offline. Fortunately our son was already asleep and didn’t notice a thing. The 2nd proof of Issue 11 arrived, and it’s a big improvement. It’s still a bit […]
