What They Don't Tell You about Writing

Ask me anything   Hello all! My name is Sarah Grunder. I am a writer and English Teacher. I am hoping to connect to other writers and readers, and be able to share my work as it gets published.

"The only writers who are NOT receiving rejection letters on a regular basis are those writers who are not submitting queries, articles, stories, or book proposals on a regular basis. Rejection is just part of the business of writing."

*A Puff of smoke and Matt Smith bursts out*

I submitted a story to Ploughshares 42 days ago and haven’t gotten a response yet! According to Duotrope, other people are getting 15-30 day rejections, and pieces from July 11th have been rejected (mine was sent June 19th). 

I am hoping this is a good sign! The longer I got without an email from them, the better!

I know the future hubs loves me because he lets me watch Doctor Who during TV time even though he isn’t a fan if the show (how it is possible for someone to not like Doctor Who I have no idea).

Upcoming goals:
Final edits and send-off for Glimmer Train short fiction contest

Read Insurgent

Reread the entirety of Harry Potter

Finish my pilot episode script

All to be completed by September first, lets do this.
