Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick updates from my desk.

  1. This week brought another rejection for a flash story that I’ve been sending around. But I also sent it to still another publication. Statistics so far: 12 rejections, 11 places where it’s still “received,” “in-progress,” or otherwise under consideration.
  2. The week also brought publication of this new piece of mine about Israel-infused Jewish kidlit.
  3. And I hope that I’ll be seeing some of you at this weekend’s Jewish Book Council Jewish Writers Seminar for Adult Readers.

    Thanks, Erika. I love how your support for the place of our beginning hasn’t wavered in this parlous and hypocritical era. Best of luck with your flash story and your children’s book submissions. May Hashem bless you with strength, success and satisfaction.

    Your submission statistics are impressive, Erika. I have not submitted for more than a year (Slacker!), but you continue to inspire us all to action. I read all your blog notes and appreciate all your encouragement and support. I have been ill, but that’s hardly an excuse.
    All best, Sandy
