From An Optimist’s Calendar

 


Twin Acceptances!

Got word yesterday afternoon that China Grove Press is taking another story of mine called “This Side of Heaven” and PAYING me again.  So that was exciting enough.  This morning, though, I got my poem about baseball accepted to an outfit called Cobalt, where it will also be included in a book anthology called “Five Years of Cobalt Baseball”.  So I am excited about everything this morning and looking forward to maybe more acceptances from some of the better magazines that I’ve started sending to.  That’s the next step.

I had to pull both stories from other journals and was able to substitute at one; I’m hoping to see if I can substitute something for my Creative Nonfiction entry as well.  I don’t know what I’ll send, but I will be thinking about it.  I think the only thing I have that would fit would be ‘My Bipolar Story in Pictures”.  But we will see. I’m very excited right now and think it will be a good day today!
