I am going to try to post (briefly) things going on with me more often. Don't worry, they will be book/writing related. I wouldn't use this space just to talk about myself, you guys would leave and you are too precious for that.
First, I received a Luminous Luminary Laurel from Donna at Believe in Yourself. She has been awarding them to writers she feels most deserve them. I am always grateful to Donna for her friendship and encouragement. She is such a kind soul and a talented writer herself. She never fails to make people feel good about themselves. Thank you, Donna!
I am no longer a patron at the bookstore in my town. My best friend and I have been having very negative interactions with one of the clerks there but, apparently, it isn't just her. They cannot post a sign saying "No Disabled People" but it is sure what they broadcast. If you guys want me to go into it all someday, I will... promise.
A flash fiction of mine has been accepted at www.flashesinthedark.com. It will be posted there on Tuesday. I will post the link on my acceptances page when I get it.
What goes up...
I got two rejections in the span of two hours yesterday. Both were personalized but, while one was encouraging, the other one wasn't. I wish I would have gotten a form rejection from the one that wasn't; I cried so hard. No matter what I do with my writing, all it takes is one nasty person to bring me down; my husband really doesn't understand it because, after all, I was just accepted a few days ago. I am not submitting there anymore.
I updated my Poetry Place page Thursday. Check it out if you want to.
I appreciate you guys!
