My story was good. Betty Jo and I went to the Sleuth's Ink Meeting in July. We were encouraged to, "Submit,Submit,Submit." After edit, edit, edit, I read my story, to The Weekly Writers Guild. I was advised to leave out, "that sentence." OK, more edit. READY ! Mail Monday.
Sunday, I bought the magazine, that I was sending my story.
Opened to the page my story would be printed, when accepted. Got a big SCARE ! In a few words IT WAS MY STORY! I threw down the magazine.
Disappointment, reproach, I had been setting on this one a long time, if
I had sent it out...I wouldn't cry. Today, picked up the magazine to find out how it was different from mine. It wasn't my story at all! YEA ! I can go ahead and send it on schedule.
