Celebrate the Small Things!

Celebrate blog hopI have just joined the Celebrate the Small Things blog hop. The rules are simple: each Friday, post about something you want to celebrate achieving/doing that week.

This week I’m celebrating the fact that I submitted a short story to an online magazine. Big deal, right? But for me it is. Until about a year ago, I’d never shown anyone my fiction. Since then, I’ve joined a critique group, entered (and won!) a literary contest, and, just this year, submitted two pieces for publication. Will my two submissions get published? Maybe, maybe not. In both cases, I submitted to markets that are a little out of my league, but then I thought the literary contest was out of my league, too. Sometimes you just have to put yourself out there and see what happens.

Happy Friday!

  1. Wow!! This is awesome to read and SO inspiring. I personally LOVE your work so I’m not entirely surprised to hear you won the literary contest, but this is so great to hear! Congratulations! And best of luck with your submissions! I always hesitate to share my work so it’s nice to hear a success story!

  2. Good luck with the submissions! It’s always good to aim high. If you don’t get accepted at one of those places you think are beyond your level, you can try another. Perseverance is everything.
