Lots of celebration on Facebook and twitter of my Pushcart nomination and of Steve's two Pushcart nominations, from CHICAGO QUARTERLY REVIEW and THE NASIONA. And everyone's Pushcart nominations, for that matter. In the meantime, more rejections. I'm not sure whether I should just retire some of these flash, or keep plugging away. The acceptance at THE MINNESOTA REVIEW suggests that I should keep plugging away.
A solicitation from F(R)ICTION, which is very cool. (Solicitations, however, haven't always resulted in publication for me.) What's especially cool is that it motivated me to return to an essay I've been meaning to revise and work through a substantial revision. At this point in the semester I seem to have time to write. Classes end next week, and I'll have a ton of grading after that. But then a month off with our new switch from quarters to semesters. Hooray!
