I love to read Take a Break, and the Fiction Feast. Always full of great stories written by my favourite writers'. Today my story came back to me. One of those brown envelope days. Previously, whenever I've had anything published, which has always been articles never stories (yet), I've had a phone call or email. So, I guessed that it was a no.no. However, the optimist in me has to find something positive in this rejection. I sent the story on the 10th January. Sometimes a story can come flying back so fast I often wonder if it even touched down on the editor's desk. This one looks 'well thumbed' so I think they liked it. (ever optimistic). So, I'll now check it over, re-print, and try somewhere else.
No. 1 Positive thought. They kept it for over a month.
No. 2 " " Words with Jam accepted an article to be published in April issue.
No. 2. " " My family still think I'm great.
Finally, Norah McGrath from Take a Break didn't say, "Don't ever send a story here again." so it's not the end of the world. Thank you blogging friends for reading.
