Running a magazine I tend to forget that I can send my own work off to other publications. In fact, I've not really thought about my own work for a little while but this week I've had confirmation that two photographs plus a piece of writing will be in thegreendog (ok, I know the editor but she's pretty fussy, in fact she rejected my first idea so I had to completely rewrite my submission! But it's another notch on the literary bedpost and the rewrite did give a better result but don't tell her I said that!) and I've had a request from another online magazine about submitting a selection of photos to them for consideration. It feels good!
I'm also thinking about entering the BWA unpublished competition 2010 - I have the idea (which I think could be very good) but dare I start to put myself out there? Online magazines are all well and good, it's the opinion of one or two people whether they like my work or not but going for something big? I don't know what the rejection would feel like...
