Can I tell you a secret? I had this dream about getting an acceptance email, and I held onto it tightly, quietly. I pretended I didn’t expect rejections, but I didn’t expect all the rejections. It was the first time I put myself out there…

I’m fine. I’ll be fine. It’s just my ego. It hurts. In my experience, though, good things come shrinking the ol’  ego. So, I’ll be restructuring the poetry book and getting it ready to go out again after I finish the draft of All the Words.

Whine break is over. Time to get back to the work.
