Ok, so the Parenting magazine didn't want my article, but the Columbus Dispatch did. Here's the story.
I got the best phone call today. You would have thought I was being nominated for a Pulitzer. The Columbus Dispatch called to tell me that they are publishing my story "The Disgusting Things I find in my Pockets" in this Sat's paper.
After tons of rejections, it feels so awesome to have someone say yes. She even told me that I definitely had a touch. Those were some sweet weirds.
What I learned is :
1) Never, ever give up
2) Keep perfecting and working on your craft
3) Keep putting yourself out there. Enter contests, send queries, keep sending your work out.
I also now have my first item for my writing resume. I now have something more than, member of SCBWI. I will actually have a published work.
There will be an electronic version at www.dispatch.com. Check it out on Saturday
