In attempting not to break my resolutions one day into the new year, I have submitted one of my short stories to three literary journals. "Modeling Life" is now in the hands of the editors at Missouri Review, Ploughshares, and Virginia Quarterly Review. I will send it to others as well, but these journals accepted online queries so I didn't have to drag the kids out to the post office. I am submitting to the journals that have the highest numbers of short stories in The Best American Short Stories and The O. Henry Awards. I figure, why not shoot for the stars!
