Thankful Thursday 9/18/2014

Although I received my first rejection letter from the Nano Stories contest about not winning the $500 grand prize, my story will still be published in the magazine and I won a year subscription. I was bummed out about not winning the prize money, but I'm glad I'll still be published. I have to rewrite dialog for the Bartleby Snope's dialog contest and I was given until September 30th to do so. When I get back from vacation, I will because I think it'll inspire me. I'm thankful I was given another chance to resubmit.

I'm thankful for being a writer. As I posted last night, I want to actually publish future work instead of self publishing. Well, I'm not going to give up self publishing all together, but I want to try actual publishing too. It's been 3 years since I last put out a book; I want to get working on a poetry book and try my hand at that. I am also still working on my Wisconsin book; I post it to Writing.com and I think I will try sending that to a publishing house when I'm done. I used to release a book every year, it's time. :)

Alright, I have to finish uploading my iPod for Memphis. I purchased some songs last night, but I want to upload a few CDs. I'm so excited and I am thankful for this trip as well. I want to leave you with a song:

  1. A shame that you didn't win the money, but at least your name will be published (something to put on your resume, perhaps?) and you won a subscription. :)

    1. That's true! I could put it on a resume.I can't wait to see the winning entry; that way next time I submit I know what they're looking for when they award money. I'll post what I sent them after my Memphis stuff.

  2. I've never won a thing. Congrats on the publication and subscription!

    1. Thank you! A little sad about the money, but at least I can say I was actually published. Rejection - something everyone has to face.
