Do I dare disturb the universe?

And how should I presume?


I decided today that while I do not want to live my life in the public eye, I think I'd be happy being a well-known (or at least a heard of) poet. Maybe "Poetry" IS a little presumptuous...perhaps some smaller journals somewhere else first. Time to stop being afraid of rejection slips, I think.

Go for it! Try not to second guess yourself, fear only holds you back from living. So don't buy into it, life is about taking risks, you already know the worst that can happen. Be positive a life without change now what fun is that really?

Just to let you know, I really enjoy reading your blog. You're funny, candid, insightful, intelligent and very entertaining. I'd read (and buy) your poetry.

You're great, Liz!

all the best writers have folders and folders of rejection slips. in 'running with scissors,' the mom mod-podges her trash can with rejection slips, which is hilarious. EMBRACE THE REJECTION LETTERS! at least it's mail, right?!
