The Success Is in the Action

...Not the Result

The affirmation in this entry's title and subtitle is something I try to tell myself whenever I do something brave that is a long-shot. Tonight, for the first time since I was in my early-twenties, I sent a query letter to a magazine, offering to submit an article for publication.

Here's the automated response I received, which nonetheless thrilled me:

Thank you for your submission to Curve magazine. Please note that it can take up to eight weeks for a response.

Diane Anderson-Minshall
editor in chief

Let's see what happens. I'm grateful to my writer-artist friend, Val, who pumped me up with courage earlier this evening. Little did she know that her encouragement would be applied so literally, so soon. Thanks, Val!
