No Clarion West 2015 for me

I received my rejection letter Tuesday; I will not be attending Clarion West 2015.

Unlike others who shared the same judgement, my rejection email neither included a note that the reading committee commened my work nor an encouragement to apply again.

I’d be lying if I said my ego wasn’t bruised, but I’ve always been viewing Clarion West as an accelerant, not a gate, so I write.

Next step: finish some works in progress and submit them for publication.

Goal: paid publication* (or placement for publication) before year’s end.

Right then; back to writing.

*Excluding my existing self-publishing endeavors that earn me occasional lunch money.
