Packing Peanuts V: Time is a Spice

Today's Packing Peanuts are from an interesting time in my life when I worked on the editorial side of a publication and had the opportunity to read thousands of submissions to help decide what would be accepted or rejected for publishing.

These are parts of three pieces that weren’t accepted for various reasons, but still pulled at my heart strings. They are reminders to me that:
  • You don’t have to be verbose or perfect to hit home.
  • Just because one publication doesn’t accept your work doesn’t mean your words aren’t important and touching. Always try, try again.

  1. I would be terrible at that job. I'd want to say yes to everyone because I know how it is to hear no. I love your perspective on it.

  2. I second Julie....you know me I love everything ;-) Thanks for sharing these!!
