Poems "Mixed State" and "Broken" Appear in Blanket Sea Magazine Online

Hi all!

Just a quick note to say that I came out of poetry submission retirement so to speak to submit work to a new online literary magazine called Blanket Sea because I believe so much in what they are planning to accomplish with it.

Blanket Sea is a magazine that welcomes, encourages and is really focused on pieces about chronic health issues, mental illness, and disability. They are looking for writers with these various challenges to submit prose and poetry, so I sent in a few pieces and was thrilled they chose to publish two poems, "Mixed State" and "Broken" on their website.

Click here to see my poems, and thank you again to Blanket Sea for including my work in your fine mission. I am truly honored.

My Prose Piece "What I Believe About Kindness" Appears in the Journal of Kindness

I am very pleased to tell you all that a non-fiction prose piece I wrote on the subject of kindness was accepted for publication by the Journal of Kindness, a new site that I am very excited about because the poetry and prose is all kindness-focused.

Please do stop by to read it and if you are a writer, perhaps consider submitting something to this lovely journal.

My thanks to everyone at Journal of Kindness for considering and accepting my work. It feels good to be 'out there' again (and twice in one weekend...small steps produce happy results for me.)

Visit the Journal by clicking here.

Happy Sunday!

Magical One and Two Sentence Stories Today on Rebecca Yelland's Blog

It's been a while since I have shared anything writing-wise outside my own blog or quick tweets on Twitter, so when Rebecca Yelland (@rebecca_yelland on Twitter, give her a follow!) posted that she was looking for one and two sentence stories to include in a special blog post, I couldn't resist giving it a try. I was so pleased that she liked my story and chose to include it.

What I didn't know was that she was going to take each submission and put it with an amazing graphic! She really did an outstanding job finding just the right image for each story.

So today I invite you to visit her blog and see the power that one and two sentence stories can have, first hand. The answer may surprise you... sometimes less really is more.

Thank you again, Rebecca, for the opportunity to participate!
