Speaking of facing fears...

I received my first two rejection slips from poetry publishers today. Funny they should come on the same day. I ran into the spare room and opened them by myself, and after reading them, allowed myself one full minute to relish the sweet bitterness of rejection.

And then I threw both slips in the recycling and got back to writing.

I'm officially a REAL writer now.
