Fringeville Edition #3, June 21 2011

In a perfect world, I would post every day. My world is decidedly imperfect. When I got in from work last night it was after 10pm. I ate and went right to bed.

This morning, I submitted a second entry to Glimmer Train’s June fiction open. I’ve been writing a long time now, and it’s critical that I start getting things out there.

Of course, odds are always against publication. But the key is perseverance and staying positive. One thing I’m planning to do on my submission-tracking spreadsheet is call any rejections a ‘pass’ by the editors. It sounds a lot better than: REJECTED. It sounds more like an opportunity got by them. And that makes it easier for me to keep at it.
