So Positive Patty needs to take a break for a moment and have a little venting session.
Remember when I was super stoked over the fact that my poem “Why?” was chosen for publication through Mused magazine back in March? Well I sent some more of my poetry to the online mag. recently for the summertime issue, and this morning I found out they all got declined.
Mind you they were old poems that I had written well over a year ago and I chose to send them simply because I was too lazy to write new stuff – so I can’t really complain since it’s my own slacking butt’s fault. But it still sucks when your personal stuff gets declined.
I guess I’ll just have to get used to it if I actually want to make a go of this writing thing and the tough business that comes with it.
As the wise Chumbawumba once said “I get knocked down, but I get up again.” So suck it up kid and get your poetry-writing ass in gear for the fall submissions.
Oh hey Positive Patty, you’re back. That was quick.
