taking the plunge!

Well I finally did something I have not done in many years. I submitted some of my writing to a journal in hopes that it may get published. I only sent 5 pieces, mostly poetry, some of which I've posted in this blog before. The journal is nothing fancy, just something funded by some worker-education group on campus. No guarantee that it will get accepted, and if it does get accepted then there is a good chance they will ask me to edit it before it gets published. So a long road if it gets accepted, but a chance that it might get rejected too. No money for this either, just doing it for the experience I guess. Still hoping to be able to take a writing class in the Spring semester too, but have to wait for approval from the Assistant Director first, and she is currently on vacation. Hopefully I will know next week whether I'll be able to do it or not.
Anyway, I know it's not much, but I'm crossing my fingers anyway. It's nice to have an excuse to write.
