Two Acceptances in One Day
How likely are you to receive two acceptances for publication in one day? Highly unlikely, I should say, until the very thing happened yesterday. I checked one email account to find an acceptance from Writing on the Edge, and later, while fixing dinner, another email came in from Literary Mama, accepting a piece with the caveat that they want me to shorten it. I had sent out both pieces in December, and I hadn't marketed them much because they are both more suitable for targeted markets. Mind you, these two acceptances came after a yearlong drought. Goes to show that you have to persevere, and that the old adage "when it rains, it pours" is true. Needless to say, I'm buoyed by all this - perhaps this blog is good writing karma?
