I’ve decided I want to be, published that is. You know I really like my stuff (that is okay to say right?), and I like seeing my stuff in magazines. I have gone out for the Hall of Fame the last two years, but contests and that are pretty much the only things I’ve ever done (and not won). So I printed off a bunch of page calls and put up a little strip of cork board to hang them on as friendly reminders to myself. I see this as beneficial in a couple of ways. 1. I am more likely to get "picked up" if I fit a specific call and 2. it gets me to scrap stuff I kind of put off (um I think I have an anti-seasonal problem). All and all I’m excited to start trying this new technique. Oh and did I mention that I really want to get goodies and money for pages I want to scrapbook anyway, because that would be cool. I have been published once. In the CK Annual idea book Volume 8 (page 53 if you wanna look) and I was so super excited about it. It’s validation, you know, that you are doing something right. Well I’ll let you know how it all goes. 🙂
I’m so glad you mentioned your page in the mag and the page number. I freely admit to having that book and having looked through it once, for my page! terrible, eh? Yours is totally cool – love the green/orange combo, totally see why it got picked up!
Good luck with the pubbing!!
You’ve actually been published twice… remember in the fourth grade for the poem you wrote.
I stumbled across your blog while I was doing some online research. Yes, most writers do see publication as a form of validation. However, most writers also know that rejection letters come with the territory. Just keep plugging away and don’t give up; those who give up NEVER get published!
