Time to dust off this blog again. It's probably the best way to keep my relatives apprised of what's going on with me. So here goes...
I had an essay accepted by Pleiades today. That's a big goal -- published by a lit journal -- accomplished a little more quickly than I thought it would be.
The weird thing is I re-read the essay and I thought it was awful. I got all down on myself for being a bad writer.
Writing is really ridiculous, isn't it?
Things are going great for me. In addition to this lit journal milestone, I got hired to to teach at the New Letter's writing conference. I'm making progress on my novel.
But still, I flog myself.
I'd be concerned if I didn't know this is all too common.
