A couple of months ago I wrote a short story against the backdrop of the winter solstice and the Northern Lights in response to a call for submissions by a magazine. I was not successful but instead of just filing the story away thinking it must be a load of old rubbish, as I have done in the past, I read it through and thought I'd try again. I sent it off to another magazine and today I received confirmation of acceptance. I've decided you have to take all rejection on the chin and just keep on trying - you'll never get anywhere otherwise. Accept that all reading is subjective and you will eventually find someone who likes your story. Thank you Sanitarium Magazine for giving a much-needed confidence boost. You can read my story Beiwe in Issue 15 of Sanitarium http://sanitariummagazine.com/.
A writer - I think that says it all.
