Here’s the Motivation.

February 4, 2007

So, my prior post…see below, was all about finding the motivation to keep on writing.

Well, I found the best motivation.  It’s that thing called an email from a literary journal or a magazine…or anyone, really…who says, “yes! we love this! We want everyone to read it.”  I just got a great email with words to that effect (minus the exclamation points, mind you). I had submitted a short story and it was accepted yesterday.

(waiting politely for the applause to stop before I continue) 

If there is something that will push you forward, it’s this: take the rejections in stride, but man…savor those acceptances. They are pure gold motivation for the spirit.

  2. Hey, OscarMacSweeny…I don’t put my stories on my blog because then they are considered “published”–and then I can’t submit them. Sooooo…when it comes out, I’ll post a link and people can read the story there.
    Thanks for visiting my blog!
