"Writing can be messy; full of pointless breakdowns, yelling at the computer, banging your forehead against the keyboard, and hiding under the table."

It's Hard Being A Writer

So, I just wanted to give one little quick update.

I have talked on this blog before about Poetry Magazine and how I submitted my work to it. Well, I got a notification today that they didn't want to publish any of my poems that I had sent. Inevitably, I am kind of sad now, but I won't give up. I've already submitted three more, but I don't know how much hope these three have.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see...


  1. I alos submitted poems to but after I read the ones in the poetry mag I totally new I would never get in I hope you do because I like yours way better then some of those in there it is just really hard to get what it means and if you do it is just BORING so well I hope you get to freshen up the book.

  2. Amber!!
