20 in 2020?
2019 was a slow year for writing and sending out poems. Some years I aim for 100 rejections which requires more than 100 submissions. This year I only sent out 21 submission packets, so I only achieved 8 rejections, with 5 acceptances, 3 publications already out, 2 publications pending, and 8 packets awaiting response. So if I aim for 20 in 2020, which sounds good, meaning either 20 submissions or 20 rejections, it seems reasonable, based on 2019. But who knows? 2020 promises to be a busy year in other ways, especially since I am still a precinct committeeperson, and on the ballot again on March 17, 2020, St. Patrick’s Day, with a big election coming in November. Let’s all hope for the best on that one!
