A bit of encouraging news! A publisher has asked to see my poetry manuscript!!! I sent this publisher a few poems about two weeks ago, and I got the letter today. Admittedly, it's a form letter, but no publisher, journal, or review has ever asked to see my manuscript. I'm usually the one in hot pursuit. Heck, all of the form letters I get are rejections. It's nice to get an acceptance once in a while.
Guess I can equate this to making it past the qualifying rounds of American Idol, or Wimbledon, only much cooler! Don't want the jinx it by mentioning the publisher's name, but it's first name starts with a "G," ends with a "f."
And I thought today's high point was going to be this morning's dentist appointment!
