Is "Sent out submissions" redundant? In any case, there are few holes in my gallery for now, including the one I wrote for Ron "Bark" Ray. I'm hoping it, and some of my other "ducklings," maybe find a larger audience.
My husband says I should be holding stuff back so that I can submit to those mags (many, if not most) that demand they have first rights rather than just want to feature pieces that folks might not stumble on otherwise. I send a virtual literary hug of sorts to those who do
accept work that's been seen by our cozy literary community and those non-lit folks who kindly seek our pieces out.
Oh, more to the point. It's been so long since I've braved submitting stuff. I was spurred into action by a fellow poet's Facebook post. As I said there, it's a mix of excitement (though elation would have been the better word) and fear and trepidation. I keep looking at my e-mail in case there's an immediate rejection.
Even though I have faith in my "little ducklings."
P.S. Don't forget my other "duckling,"
