Finally submitted a bunch of stuff (mostly poems) over the last few days. They’re not poems I’m super satisfied with – as I do not write poetry as my main genre – but I want to see something happen to them. Otherwise, they’re taking up space. The question is: are they really just taking up space?
There are many reasons I write. Writing is supposed to be this lonely, self-satisfying thing on some level, but I think we all, too some extent, write so that others will someday see our work. Even if we’re not actively trying to publish, we still want someone to connect with what we do.
NOTE: Sent out six poetry submissions over two days, and two short story submissions. Already received one rejection less than 48 hours after submitting.
