A milestone: the first pro sale by a member of my Clarion 2004 class of a story written while at Clarion. Trent Hergenrader just sold "A Change of Seasons," a story drawing on Native American mythology, to Cicada, a fiction magazine for teens. Go, Trent!

Cicada is one of the 'bug mags', Carus Publishing's stable of publications named after insects, aimed at specific children's age groups. They pay very well, far higher than any of our usual sff mags. If you're writing fiction for YA or younger, they're a prime market.


Let me bring a couple of feeds to your attention.

delicious__pop is a feed of the most popular links posted to del.icio.us, an on-line group bookmarks manager. The most interesting stuff pops up here. I made a feed for this on LJ, and so far I'm the only one using it. *sniff* It's really good. (Note that there are two underscores in the name, not one.)

evan points to a feed for the comic, Perry Bible Fellowship: pb_fellowship. PBF is strange, dark, and funny.


KAI

ku(yamu), kuya(shii), ku(iru)
meaning: regret, repent, vexed

後悔 == koukai == (noun which can take する to act as a verb) regret, repentence
悔悟 == kaigo == (noun) remorse


Left radical is one of the radical forms of 'heart/feelings' (心), Right radical is 'every' (毎), which acts phonetically to express 'resent'. This apparently came to mean 'resentment against oneself', i.e., regret and remorse. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Every person has feelings of regret.'
