pretend and proceed

August 30, 2010

Oh Creative One! Last night, my email went ping! For a moment, I hoped. I hoped it was an email from some editor thinking that some story of mine was worthy of publication in some journal or book or quarterly. I had an energy for a moment that I did not previously have. I knew exactly what I would send of to a slew of editors next. Sigh and alas, it was just a note from some catalog from whose mailing list I can’t seem to permanently remove my name.

Lovely Creative One, pretend you have been acknowledged by someone you don’t know. Pretend they adore your work. Pretend and proceed with that little spark in your belly. I have no problems living the lie if it gives you a bit of confidence to continue your work…
