It felt good to take my copy in to work and show some of my co-workers my accomplishment. One of my student workers asked me a question which had me going well duh. She asked if the magazine was nationally published.
I’ve been in published in Circle for a while now. It always feels good to be in such a nice magazine and to see my work in print. I never thought about it quite that way before. When I say – I’ve been published in a nationally published magazine – that sounds so accomplished I guess.
I hadn’t thought that my affiliation with Circle and the magazine could be looked at that way until my student worker pointed it out to me. I'll take the boost to my morale this gave me but try to stay humble because I’m still getting a lot of rejections.
