In the deflating days of rejection that every writer must endure, I hope you don’t mind the following piece of shameless celebrating, cough, self-promotion.
The following lovely email arrived last night and made my day.
Keep persevering (no, not preserving, Mr SpellChecker).
Thank you for feeding The Cabinet Of Heed! The Cabinet is very excited to accept your excellent story “Sailing The Eighth Sea.” It will be displayed proudly and sensitively within the body of The Cabinet forevermore.
Your story will appear inside its own drawer in Issue Eighteen which is scheduled to be online mid-March. You will receive an email notifying you when the issue is live. Your photograph, also credited to you, will appear with your story.
The Cabinet Of Heed only exists because of the efforts of excellent writers like you! It will do Its best to continue to promote this work via social media. Every post to help share The Cabinet Of Heed to a wider audience is greatly appreciated.
Continued best wishes for you and your writing! We would love you to consider submitting to The Cabinet Of Heed again sometime soon.
Meanwhile, congratulations… do celebrate!
If you can, do go and check out the Cabinet Of Heed, and enjoy the variety of stories on offer. It is quite a lovely place. Says he who used to holiday in libraries as a child!
