The Pen Is In the Other Hand

02.22.15 Posted in Uncategorized by

I normally don’t have the time to write for pleasure, but I found some time recently and submitted a short story to an online magazine. The magazine sent me a rejection email, but with comments. The agent stated, “The story has potential” and suggested I “tighten it up” and resubmit. Woohoo! A straight-out acceptance would […]

Deadlines and Pressure

09.30.13 Posted in Uncategorized by

How do you handle deadlines? Everyone, not just writers, has deadlines. Do you need to make an appointment for a baby’s three month visit? You can’t wait until the baby is three months old to schedule the appointment. Do you need to have your car inspected before the end of the month? Don’t wait a […]
