jillypoet: mom trying to write

Each day I wish I had invented waterproof sticky notes (for shower inspiration) or pen-friendly diapers to get down all my quirky thoughts that I am sure are relevant and publishable. And so God (actually another writer-mommy) sent me The Blog.

Some editors are just too cool for words

Brilliant, illustrious, diligent poet that I am, I sent off a submission the other night WITHOUT THE POEMS!

Can you imagine?

I received the nicest email today from the editor, telling me that they received my submission with no poems attached. And they asked me to re-send them.

Can you imagine?

They didn't even write me off as a crazy loony-bin who doesn't deserve to be published.

I love them!

They probably thought...now here's a true poet who can't be bothered with the tedium of administrative tasks or organization....they probably have a feeling they are going to love what they read, when they can actually read it!!
