Accomplishment!!!

Few things feel better than having finished something you'd been putting off. In my case, it's been a couple of poetry submissions with December dates for deadlines. I dread cover letters. I hate listing publications and nominations, hate having to sell myself. It reeks of falsehood. Still, I do understand the necessity. Every once in awhile, though, something inside cracks and gives way. This summer the editor of one anthology I submitted to neglected to give his name in the call for submissions. His was the second cover letter I'd wrestled with in the same day, and full of frustration, resentment and the need for relieving humor, I addressed him as "Dear Mr. Evil Genius Editor." He took the poem. Go figure.

Today I have just finished getting the December submissions composed, printed, weighed, enveloped, stamped and finished. It feels good. Done. Complete. (A rare and luxuious experience for us INFP's.)

Congratulations on day well spent!

Congrats! I see you have Unky Moods too (on right side of the page.)

Cindy said...

Thanks for the congratulations. :)

Am not sure about the Unkymoods. Am still considering. Unfortunately, "Reflective", "Skeptical" and "Warped" aren't options. All among my most frequent moods. Still, they're fun!

you know what my favorite mood is?

Huggable!

Hi, Michel. Haven't seen you before; it's nice to "meet" you. "Huggable", eh? I'd expect that one to be on the list, but it isn't. Neither is "Homicidal"--a very useful one.

Hey Cindy, imood.com has "Reflective" and "Skeptical", but not "Warped" (I was suprised at that)...

Anyways...Imagine being an INTP! Doing cover letters or anything to connect to the outside world is...frustrating....

Jadon--Hmm. . .will have to check out imood. Thanks for the heads-up. Now if we could just find somewhere with "Homicidal". . . and maybe "Medicated".

I have great sympathy for INTPs. (I test out INTP just a little under half of the times I run through the MBTI, actually.)

Thanks for stopping by!
