Is Good News

Regarding tonight's new blog post that isn't: it's a very good thing!

I might have mentioned an anthology that published earlier this month, in which I have an essay?

Well, an editor from a major parenting magazine read the book, liked my essay, and asked me to submit a piece for her magazine. I sent two. I like this thing where people ask me for stuff and I send it; it cuts down on some of the rejection I'd be experiencing if I were actually sending out unsolicited manuscripts like I should be!

  1. I'm jealous. Congrats. That has to be so exciting. To not have to go through the round of rejections is everyone's dream. If you submit a manuscript now, you'll have some publications to put on your query letter. I'm happy for you.

  2. Congratulations! And as Amanda said, it will definitely be easier to put yourself out there successfully later with some work published already.
