More good news

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been submitting poetry and short fiction, and it looks as though I am having a fair bit of success. I just received notification that this one was published today.

That makes two poems and two short stories accepted in the last nine days. Sod the novels; I’ll just keep writing shorts ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m editing this to say I have just had a haiku accepted in another magazine. So make that three poems.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Congratulations, Jane! Your heart is in poetry which is obvious by what you write. Continue to follow your heart and do the novels when you need a break.

      1. Good for you Jane! You were a bit down a while ago. Hope this has proved to you that you have great talent, that its all worth it, and that its only just the beginning of your successful career.

      2. Thanks for the boost, Ali. I have been a bit ground down by it all. There are people who like what I write, and nobody can expect to please everybody. I’ll just have to be satisfied with that.

      1. Why worry about trying to get a publisher, Jane? They don’t seem interested in much but potential best sellers and even then take months (years?) to publish. Maybe you just need to invest in a little marketing as an indie?

      2. I wish I had the resources, Geraldine. No money and too little time. I want somebody else to carry the can for a bit. If I was accumulating some cash from sales I could invest it, but I’m not. I’m always gobsmacked by how many copies other people sell.
