in two days, i have submitted two pieces to two different publications. with the exception of my community college publication (which a lot of people don't take seriously), these are the first two publications i have sent anything to (or...to where i have sent anything).
i submitted to Glimmer Train, and don't expect anything. i know i have to receive many, many, many rejection letters before i acheive anything. however, the piece i submitted is something i have worked on for five years. it's my baby. and i'm petrified.
the other one, well, i wrote it in twenty minutes. and, of course, it's probably my best piece of work. go figure. my best work is done in twenty minutes. my worst is probably all of that **** i've poured over for years.
EDIT: I really don't like censorship.
