Confusing guidelines~

Sometimes it seems you can't win. I saw that a woman's web site was looking for stories for their contest, so I sent them an essay according to guidelines. The editor wrote right back and asked me to send it in the body of an email. The guidelines specifically stated not to! Oh well, I'm happy she even responded. Maybe this is a good omen.

The writer's life: confusing, rewarding, exciting, time-consuming. Just when you think you have it figured out, someone tosses you a curve ball. Don't get discouraged; you never know when you might hit a grand slam! Keep those stories circulating. If you haven't submitted anything this week, at least write something for yourself.

Guidelines, schmidelines! Seems like these days, I only write for myself. There is just no time to submit. Summer will change that, hopefully.

Love your new picture!
