Three quick things.
1. Two rejections this week (but neither from a literary journal!). The first came when a conference-session proposal was turned down. The second was for an event where some of my poems would have been featured.
2. On a more positive note: Remember last week, when I mentioned that I was struggling with writing something along the lines of a letter to the editor? (It’s not exactly that, but similar.) Well, I did finish that task. Then, I hit “send.” So far, I’ve received a gracious acknowledgment, with a promise to follow up.
3. Something else I count as an accomplishment from recent days: I’ve received both this year’s flu shot and the first of the two-dose shingles vaccine. Debilitating illness is the last thing my writing or I need anytime soon. In that, I suspect that I’m not alone.
