Opportunities in the Great Big Literary World- July 18, 2011

Song of the Day: We are the Champions by Queen

   Hello all! How was the weekend? As you all may or may not know, I'm on vacation! Sadly, this is my second to last day off. I was supposed to be blogging more, but then I realized that I had better try and spend my time really zoning in on what important things need to be done. I made a list of what I planned to do on my vacation, and I'll tell you all about how much of it actually got done in a separate post.

    I want to share some exciting news with you all. Over my little break I got an acceptance letter for a short story I wrote. It will be published in a literary magazine called The Scarlet Sound this August! Those of you who read my blog know about the endless rejections I've had. It feels so good to finally get a yes. Which brings me to my next point. I was relentless with my submitting. People, you have got to get your work out there. That's all I can say. Take Advantage of the free contests and the calls for submissions. It pays off in the end. I hope you all will make the effort to submit your work somewhere at least once a month. You can find lots of opportunities here every Monday. It's really that easy.
