I just wrote a very wise post but unfortunately, wordpress didn’t know that I wanted text with my picture. Ever since WordPress’s blog changed, I can’t figure anything out anymore. Before the change, I chose what I wanted, Text, picture or link. Now, I don’t know how to add the image and the text together and there’s only Beep, Beep, Boop. I’m not interested in Beep, Beep, Boop. I just want my picture with my text.
Rant over. Okay, What I said before was that I am a little wiser as a writer now. I don’t put all my hopes and dreams into every submission. I no longer cry over every rejection. I realize there will be a lot more rejections than acceptances. I found out my acceptance percentage was 12 % and I realize I’m excited about that. Also, I submit to places I’m more likely to be published in. I started out submitting to The Sun, Ploughshares, Highlights and Cricket. Now, I submit mostly to ezines, small presses and those just starting out. I’m just glad to see my stuff anywhere. Sometimes, I shoot for the stars, but mostly, I’m thankful just to be published here on Earth.
This week, I did get two rejections. One was from T. Gene Davis Speculative Blog, and another from Tales of the Talisman. I was disappointed but I didn’t shed one tear. I just looked for other avenues. That’s what wise writers do.
