I’m very excited to post this link to an article I’ve written in the new issue of Guardian Angel Kids on Farming. Another reason for my sunny disposition is that I had two acceptances this week. Along with the article cited, I had an acceptance from Strange Musings for their anthology, Alternate Hilarities, which is scheduled for publication in early 2014. It will be the first publication in which I will share in the proceeds from the sales of the book. So that is exciting for me.
I also had two rejections this week: one from Lakeside Circus and the Photo Flare Contest, where Melinda very kindly informed me that I was in her top three. Well, onward and hopefully, upwards. I submitted to three places this week. One is to Enchanted Conversation contest. This is a site dedicated to Fairy tales although stories contributed do not have to be fairy tales, they must have the feel of a fairy tale. I also submitted to Shimmer and a new women’s zine, called Up Do. I’ll let you know as always.
Thought for the Day: Often times Editors will give you advice. If it is any way practical, take it. The advice of others is always valuable. I did get two pieces of advice last week. I’m not sure about the one but the other was very interesting. I started a new story this week and I’m glad I’m still able to write, even though I’m tired. I had two days this week where I started work at 6:30 in the morning, not my favorite hours, I assure you. Though working because I need to, I’m not giving up on my writing dreams. Don’t give up on your dreams either whatever they may be. I guess that’s two thoughts for the day. Bonus!
