my essay didn’t make it to the preliminary stages for the Masters Review anthology. But I’m okay about it. I’ll just send it somewhere else.
I’m looking forward to working on my essay for Creative Nonfiction Magazine. I’m going to start work on it Monday–it’s due by the 15th. We will see how it turns out.
I’m also going to send out a short story to the Masters’ REview Short Story Contest. They put in a line encouraging me to submit again, so I’m going to. ANd sit and wait on the rest of what I’ve sent out to come back. You; ve got to get rejected some or you’re not sending out enough. That is how I am trying to look at it.
A good day today. Went to physical therapy and then met with the painter to get the rest of my house interior painted AMD get rid of this horrible green paint we had everywhere. We’re going with a pale yellow in the kitchen, lilac in the laundry and half-bath and blue in the kids’ den. Going to be a big endeavor–that’s four rooms plus a staircase area. But then we’ll paint the girls’ rooms one more time next year and see where to go from there once we get them all moved out. I’m looking forward to it.
