Yesterday, I made my first writing submission for hopeful renumeration. Now that I'm not in 24/7 fear of being murdered, I can focus a little better. My essay is entitled: "Baltimore's Mass Transit Mayhem"
I submitted to www.sunmagazine.org
Typically, the wait before they get back to you is at least 12 weeks, because they receive 1k submissions a month.
I kissed the envelope before putting it in the outgoing mail slot!
