Occasionally one of these rejects—I don’t like to use that word, but it’s the truth— comes back a suspicious number of times. I wonder if that’s the reason I became a writer, if giving birth to stories instead of babies sublimated my maternal urges.
I do my best with them, and then I bundle them up, arm them with my publishing credits (attesting to my fitness as a mother), and launch them into the world. Lately they are all returning home, sullen and weary, collapsing on the sofa like broke college graduates.

There are indisputable similarities between the two professions: extraordinary effort, scant recognition, nothing to put in the bank.
This is always a moment of trepidation—I want so much for these innocents, namely love and acceptance. I might spruce up my qualifications, tack on a couple more publishing credits, mention the award I was short-listed for. Her debut collection of short stories, SURVIVAL SKILLS, was published in April 2013 by Ashland Creek Press and was short-listed for a Lambda Literary Award. What is important to me are those rare times when a really good editor takes the time to comment and suddenly a whole new vision of a poem emerges and one goes back to work with such gladness – whether the poem is accepted or not.


But you can’t spend your life on the sofa.” I don’t even give them time to take off their coats. I might even lower my standards, lead my problem child into a borderline neighborhood where editors are known to be more lenient.
