Sometimes, amazing things happen!
I recently wrote a blurb on here about how I was going to have five of seven submissions published by my school’s art and writing editorial.
One of the submissions that was rejected was the joint project of a poem, which was co-written by myself and the fantastic and gah-geous Tori Webster! If you want to check out her eternally optimistic blog, go here:
Tori had recently undergone some issues in her personal life, and came to me asking to help her create a cathartic poem. When it was done, we liked it so much, we decided to put a ring on it.
We were initially disappointed in the rejection from the editorial, but we didn’t give up much hope, and Tori had the brilliant idea to submit it elsewhere, and, drumroll folks, the results just came in: It’s being published!
I’m certainly glad we didn’t give up on it the first time!
We’ve both been working really hard to make sure that we’re grounded into the writing industry before we graduate school this fall—in case you didn’t notice, there’s a giant calendar on both of our pages—and this is just another exciting turn!
Now, if I could only hear such glowing news back about my query, I could literally pee my pants in excitement.
Good things may come to those who wait, but better things come to those who work towards their goals.
Anyone else having success with their writing work? Do share!
