One of the things I wanted to do in 2012 was to submit my writing for publication. My more ambitious hope was to submit writing three different times. I am one down, two to go, so here I am posting a few more links to remind myself, and to remind anyone else who is interested:
Garbanzo, vol 2: due date for submission, 11/15/12
Meat for Tea, vol "Sweets": due date for submission, 11/15/12
Up The River Journal: Submissions dates, 11/1 - 1/31
So there ya go. I realize that two of those dates are fast approaching, and I have a huge pile of first drafts to go through. But I feel like I can at least submit some pieces, and work on my cover letters, and hopefully learn some things about submission and rejection. (Whoa. That veered into 50 Shades of Grey territory for a second.) I'm not one for NaNoWriMo personally - I don't know that I have a novel in me. I do have some other things. And some of them are polished and pretty and ready to be seen, and some are dark and scary and maybe make me feel a little defensive. It's time to let them out, and see what happens.
