February’s End

And I got another rejection today.

I wasn’t surprised – I expected it. I knew seven other authors who also received rejections for this particular magazine’s round of submissions. It’s part of a group of authors who are trying to help each other get published. It’s an online critique group, but we don’t have a set meeting time.

I’m a recent addition to the group, and I’m not close with many members yet. However, I find the advice fascinating and I’m glad to have a contribution to the group.

One of my favorite things is sharing things I’ve learned. I started this with my mom and other writers when I get the chance. (Yes, my mom is a writer, too, for those of you who didn’t know. One day I hope to be able to point you in the direction of her published work.)

Next month I’ll begin again, sending more things out. I’m signing up for an SCBWI-Iowa conference in April, and I’m going to be working on my submission for the manuscript critique this weekend.

  1. Yea, Ransom. I’m glad your submitting and getting your name (s?) out there. Glad to hear your going to attend the SCBWI conference and sending in a manuscript for critique, too.

    Be sure to register for the Muse Online Writers Conference, http://www.themuseonlinewritersconference.com. If you register for that and for the year-round forum (http://www.themuseonlinewritersconference.com/Forum.html), you’ll get some exposure, too.

    Just a couple of ideas that may help.


  2. I got a rejection yesterday as well. Must have been a good day for that. At least it was sunny. 🙂
