Precipice, and a poll

Even though I haven’t linked up with them in a while, I still keep my eye on Write on Edge. I read their prompts, and go through the blogs that have linked up each week.

Staying on the sidelines means that I heard about Precipice right away. My first writing community is starting a literary review, and I want to submit something.

I’ve been “meaning” to submit to literary reviews for years. I’ve always been so scared. But, really, what’s the worst that can happen? Rejection. You know what that rejection would mean? It would mean that I tried.

Precipice seems like a good first place for me. It’s a community I have been a member of for a while – a community that has supported me. So I want to do it. I will do it. (I hope.)

Here’ s the thing: I don’t know what to submit. I think it would be interesting to submit a piece of Finding Agnes, something that can stand alone but also be a lead in to the rest of the story.

I’ve been through everything I’ve written on it, and I’ve narrowed it down to a few that I think, with a few revisions, would be good for submission.

Now, I need your help. Dear readers, what do you think? Here are the ones I’m considering:

Agnes prepares for her date with Henry


Seeking Silence

Can you take just a moment of your time and cast a vote via the poll on the sidebar? It would mean a lot to me. Seriously. The poll will remain open for 10 days – through April 22nd.

And, thank you. Thank you for reading, for commenting, for sharing.

04/13/12 UPDATE: This piece has also been thrown into consideration: The Officer

    This is hard. Each story has a different feel and emotion. ‘Jeans’ is a very strong stand alone. Yet ‘Seeking Silence’ is a strong almost frightening tale. The date preparation story is IMO the weakest of the three.

    Ok. I’m voting for Jeans. It took me this commenting to figure it out.

    Good luck which ever you choose!
