Has anybody submitted an essay to L.A. Affairs? Do you know how it takes for them to respond? I just sent a stand-alone from my memoir, Loveyoubye, to be published by SWP in Spring. Just blogged about it http://rossandrawhite.com/2013/07/something-to-celebrate/.
Shouldn't we all take a course or something, Lucille! :) but it sounds like you are doing pretty well without one!
Thank you, Amanda. I really appreciate your response. It's etched in stone now that I received a certified check for $250 from Catharsis Journal. It's really unbelievable considering that I never thought of myself as a writer. I was a musician on the NY scene, and along the way, I kept being pulled aside by people who wanted me to write for them. Catharsis wanted submissions on Creativity, And How It Influenced Your Life. My last line was, "In the past, I saw music everywhere. Now I see stories." A better ending might have been, "In the past I was a Musician who loved writing. Today I am a Writer who loves music." (Shouldn't I take a course, or something?)
A few thoughts about conscious writing in my blog post On Patience: Writing, Radiation, and Roses at Writing Women's Lives.
After a long period of silence, suddenly a flurry of responses, three, in fact.
1) Emily's Mysterious Disappearance will be published in Clever Magazine in their June issue.
2) The Piano Sale will be shown in the next issue of Yeah Write Review!
3) I won 2nd Place in a contest and will be in the first publication of Catharsis Journal in the Fall.
Please, somebody congratulate me before I pass out.

Suicide: Breaking Through
Today marks the seventh anniversary of my husband's funeral AND my cousin's suicide. I've learned the reason for suicide began long before my first attempt and, as it turns out, also is true for my cousin.
