A moment of bitterness

If they don't want me, then I don't want them.

At least that was how I felt for a brief moment when an email appeared telling me that my subscription to Brain, Child magazine was going to expire. Then my rational side kicked in and I remembered how much I enjoy the magazine.

So I will renew my subscription. And I will continue to write and submit essays to them in the hopes that eventually they will want me as much as I want them.


  1. Perfectly valid feeling, but I'm glad you decided to renew. I'm reading Jennifer Niesslein's book - Practically Perfect in Every Way: My Misadventures through the World of Self-Help and Back. And I do believe that she was probably genuinely sorry to have to turn your essay down. :^)

    And I have to say, it made me think that maybe one day WE could start our OWN magazine. :^)

  2. Oh girl... hang in there. I feel your pain more than you know . I no longer have an agent. And at 8.5 months pregnant, well it is harder to get back on the horse than I want to admit.

    Hang in there. Keep writing. And keep submitting. At least that is what I tell myself. :-)
