new attitude

i made myself stop being afraid of rejection.
so i applied to over a dozen journals in the past
48 hours.
its like slam, on the page, without the luxury
of winning a crowd over with your smile and outfit.
no funny segways and intros -- just the page. and
the words.
we'll see what happens.
we'll see...

If there's one thing I've always admired about you from afar, it was the way you seem to awlays climb over any obstacle standing in the way. Your words are uniquely you and your strive to be the best writer possible is what will continue to make you the success you are. Good Luck.

Ms. Mo,
you can definitely get published. Keep sending and don't take rejection personally. It's all about persistence, which means, I KNOW you got that.
