Woo Hoo!

One of my poems was accepted for publication in Literary Mama!!! It should be published in the January issue (how appropriate!). This is my first publication in a few years, so with any luck it will be the first of many.

I know journals and magazines are weeding through their slush piles now, but it almost seems coincidental that I received a rejection on the same day from another journal. But I don't care, because I'm on top of the world! Besides the publication, there's just a lot of good stuff going on-- I feel as if I'm accomplishing almost everything I set out to do in 2006. Hope to blog about it over the next few days.

Can you believe there are only 20 days left in the year?

CONGRATS Jan!!! Way to go. I'm so proud of you. Which poem was selected?

January said...

The poem is called "The Ripe Time." I left that detail out of the main post ... well ... because I'm superstitious.

But, as Stevie Wonder once said, "Superstition ain't the way!"

Oh, you guys!

Thanks for the kind words. None of this would be possible if it wasn't for you coming back and reading my work. You give me the encouragement to go on and for that, I thank you.
