Two Rejections, One Publication

One out of three isn't too shabby in the world of writing. Who am I trying to fool? One out of three is FANTASTIC! I'm sure any writer today would agree with me. I've been on cloud nine since this past Wednesday when I opened my mailbox to find two complimentary copies of the latest TG magazine, including an article of mine!

One publication + two rejections = success (in my heart)

I'm positive the above equation will not always be the case. However, receiving my second rejection (a different piece) at the same time as this publication gave me the power to shrug off the reject and file it away for a future submission.

Texas Gardener Publishes Article!

Texas Gardener magazine accepted one of my articles in late August. It will appear in the November / December 2010 issue that will be released soon. It is an article about preserving tomatoes in the fall, including an easy tomato soup recipe and a list of my favorite tomato varieties.

It is on page 12 in the "Between Neighbors" section. Texas Gardener is a unique magazine specifically for Texas gardeners, written by Texas Gardeners. The magazine is filled with seasonal gardening articles and helpful tips. It has been in publication for 30 years.

This is my second published article by Texas Gardener. I hope to have additional articles accepted in the future.

You can find Texas Gardener magazine in many different stores in the gardening section on the magazine aisle. If you are lucky enough to be a subscriber of Texas Gardener, your Nov. / Dec. issue should be arriving any day.
