Writers Are a Virtuous Breed

True fact.  Not that we have much choice, now, do we?  I suppose we could always write nasty emails demanding quicker responses, but that probably occurs to writers as often as it occurs to them to respond to rejection letters. (PS: DON’T DO IT!)

I’m currently waiting upon:

Painted Bride Quarterly (date submitted: January 4th; what submitted: 1 fiction, 1 non-fiction)  Official Response Time:  unknown

Skirt.com (date submitted: September 3rd; what submitted: 1 non-fiction) Official Response Time: 6-8 weeks

New South (date submitted: September 20th; what submitted: 1 fiction) Official Response Time: Unknown.

Press 53 (date submitted: September 24th; what submitted: 1 non-fiction) Official Response Time: Will find out by July 1, 2012

Literary Laundry (date submitted: October 1st; what submitted: 1 fiction) Official Response Time: 6 months or under.

Writer’s Digest Young Adult Fiction Contest (date submitted: October 16th; what submitted: 1 fiction) Official Response Time: Will find out by December 31st.

 

PS: See my super cool debut on the Weave magazine blog!  I cannot wait until Issue #7 comes out, with my flash non-fiction story, “To the New Owners of My Childhood Home,” in it!  Subscribe to Weave to read it yourself (I think it might become available online as well, but I’m not sure yet.  I’ll get back to you)!

PPS: As you can tell, writers are an extremely humble breed as well.  False.  As Brevity magazine assures us, it is 100% okay–and actually a good idea–for writers to brag about their accomplishments.  How else would our writing ever get read?!  (Sorry if you’ve already read this article because I’ve linked to it before, but it’s one of my absolute favorites.)
