I heard back about two submissions of my work. The first is from a group called expressing motherhood. I sent in an essay about a walk that I took with my children one afternoon in our neighborhood when we looked up and saw a man with a gun standing on the sidewalk. It turns out that the piece is something that I have to perform with other mothers in January. At a theatre in Venice Beach. More on that later.
The other acceptance, or semi-acceptance is from an online literary journal called Literary Mama. This particular essay is called "A History of Sleep," and the nonfiction editors want to do a little editing before giving it to their senior editor and publication. I'm very excited about this acceptance because the online journal is excellent.
Now if I could just get cracking on this dang book of mine that is a whole lot of pages and whole lot of disorganisation.
