I'm a bit under the weather today, so I'll be hopping in short spurts and I might give some super short comments. Please note that I respect your posts and all the time you put into them.
Last week, I was excited about a Writer's Workshop, but I couldn't make it due to my current "ick." However, I did get some great critique for a ten-page sample and my rough query letter for The Greenling. The critique went even farther than expected and I got some feedback on my marketing for The Champion Trilogy, so I have much to ponder - good and bad.
Insecurities are lurking, but I do have some short good news:
My micro-fiction story "Storytime" was published at 50-Word Stories last week. My poem "Strong Together" will be published at Leaves of Ink on May 18. "Storytime" made it on the first submission. "Strong Together" was rejected by three other markets before it found acceptance. I have two stories out on submission, both of which have received rejections in the past, but I still have hope that they will find their market homes.
