Gave up pursing the workshop in Paris 'cause I was sure I'd be part of this other thing-- the big thing #2 I'd mentioned before, but I was one of 200+ people vying for one of 17 spots and alas, I was also one of the 183+ who got a 'no.' The photo submissions have been no's a loooooooooooooooooooong time coming and the stories I stll have out are going to need to be queried about and I ammmmmmmmm tired of doing that. Three months is long enough to decide if you want a work. Really, it is.
But whatever. My creative life is headed somewhere and all of this is just part of the recipe, the end result.
