Egrets Reading

Rewrite, Revise

Well, I'm pleased to announce that my revision of one of yesterday's rejections to Dreams and Nightmares passed muster and was accepted for an upcoming issue.

The tweek was small, really, basically the replacement of one particular haiku in a haiku sequence. It's always interesting how much such an edit can sometimes really improve things. Not only did I get the revision past David, I actually like it a lot better myself and am much happier with the final resulting poem.

So, I now have two poems in the wings at Dreams and Nightmares - a haibun and a haiku sequence.

Now, if I could only get Asimov's to accept something of mine, I'd be a happy camper.
