in the fade


  1. When failure is success.
A couple of weeks ago I made that leap and started sending out my writing. I submitted all kinds of writing to all kinds of publications. 
The worst part about doing that is the waiting. 
And here it is. My first rejection letter.
Oddly enough, it made me feel good. Getting a rejection letter means I did it. I put myself out there. Huge leap for me.
Getting the first one - even just a form letter from a publication which rejects 98% of submissions -  felt like letting out a long held breath.
Now to wait for the other 76 answers. Let’s hope there’s at least one “yes” in there.
