MIA: Poems

My least favorite part of the writing life?  I love writing and revising (as long as I don’t get too frustrated, which happens sometimes).  I don’t mind sending poetry packets out.  Even getting rejected doesn’t bother me too much (although if I get too many rejection slips in a row, I do get a bit depressed).  It’s tracking down submissions that are missing in action.   Today, when I looked over my records,  I noticed that I have two packets out that have been missing for close to six months.  And both places say that I’m allowed to query after three months.  So yep, that’s what I am going to do.

    That’s my least favorite part, too. I have query-phobia.

  3. Happens to me all the time! The sad thing is, the people who are too busy to respond to your poems are probably also too busy to respond to queries – at least that’s been my experience.

    Well, the good news is that I got one response back to say that my poems were still under consideration. You are right Jeannine — I don’t usually get response to queries, but one was waiting in my inbox this morning!
