So, much of my recent time has been spent pondering what I want from my life and I keep saying that I want to write more and publish more. (And then I see sentences like that opening one I just wrote for this blog entry and think maybe I need to revisit my grammar skills.)
I keep saying that I’m going to write more and pitch more.
And I don’t.
I say I’m busy. I’m tired. I don’t have time. I work too much.
Well, in the fall, I had a success with Step Away Magazine publishing my Paris poem. And in January, I pitched an old essay I wrote about my daughter learning to take care of chickens when a friend of a friend went on vacation. I pitched it to Hobby Farms magazine. The editor there responded promptly that he would keep it on file.
A few minutes ago I received the notification that my piece will appear in the July/August issue of the magazine.
My portfolio grows more eclectic by the day.
