So a few days ago I received word from Manawaker about the story I submitted for their Make Your Way anthology. Unfortunately they decided to pass on the story as is; they said it has a good foundation, but needs some work to feel finished. But I was invited to resubmit it if they’re still accepting submissions in the future after giving it some TLC. Sadly I’m way too busy at the moment to edit it, but if they’re still accepting submissions in a few months, I’ll try to give it a go! 🙂
Speaking of being waaaay too busy, next weekend I was invited to take part in a panel discussion hosted by my local university! I’ve never participated in a panel discussion before, so I’m really excited (but honestly a bit nervous about the whole thing). After doing a bit of research, I started preparing what I’m going to say over the weekend (I’m going to have about 15 minutes to talk, then there will be a question and answer period after everyone has said their thing). While it’s shaping up, I’ll probably be mainly working on preparing that all week now – wish me luck!

Always a good sign to get detailed feedback even when your story isn’t accepted!
Very true! 🙂
