Chicken Soup for the Soul

Chicken Soup for the Soul accepted two more of my little essays, one for the Sister’s Soul, the other one for Chicken Soup for the Dieter’s Soul. I am so thankful. Writing is like giving birth; it was a part of you for all this time, and now it is out there for all to see. Will they laugh at it? Yet we can’t help but write it.
It takes a lot of courage to send stuff out for publication. Partly because it is you out there, and partly because of all the possibilities of rejection. Of course we shouldn’t take it personally, we know that, but it’s one thing to know it, and another to accept it.
I’ve sent stuff out many, many times, and been rejected many, many times. Now, sometimes I get accepted, and it thrills my heart. Those are red ribbon days if you ask me.
