I am on a mission to get published somewhere. If you are new here you may not know that I am working on a children’s novel that I really and truly hope to have published in the next few years. The children’s market is incredibly hard to break into no matter what but it’s even harder if you are a nobody who has never been published anywhere (self-publishing doesn’t count you see) and no one knows you from a paper boy.
So my little job right now is to become published somewhere out there in periodical land. I have sent in one submission so far and had it rejected (which I was completely prepared for and spilt no tears over it because I was aiming really high.) This time I am aiming just a wee bit lower but aiming none the less. I sent in a short article to MOMsense magazine; the official magazine of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers).
So I guess if they like it I should hear something possibly within the next 12 weeks. Once again I am prepared for rejection but still hopeful. I love writing so I don’t think I will ever give up hope of being published some day. And if I’m not, well… Oh well… I’ll still be writing anyways and loving every minute of it!
I’ll keep you all posted one way or another!
