I have had two stories published in online journals, and that's nice, but it's nothing like actually seeing your work in print. (AND getting paid a small amount for it!)
I have been trying to get my three favorite short stories into print for a couple of years. I've spent a lot of time on these stories and I love them. I believe they deserve to be in print, but the constant stream of rejection notices caused me doubt. I gave up working on new stories because it seemed so pointless. Perhaps the constant rejection was a sign from the universe that I am really not much of a short story writer after all. But now I am inspired to polish up those other two stories and send them out there once again. And maybe even get back to work on some new ones.
