Just as I was sitting here feeling pissed and sorry for myself because I got the essay I wrote for Real Simple's contest last year back again, this time from Riverteeth, I heard from Kay Marner, who is putting together that anthology for parents of children with disabilities. You might remember the essay about Jeremy, which I published on this very blog last year some time. She has tentatively accepted the essay for her book, except that she has some edits she wants me to make that she isn't sure I'll accept. I'll have to see them, but I feel optimistic about it. That would be a first for me--publication in an anthology!!! I've been thinking about writing another essay about going to the beach with my parents when I was small. This is the impetus I need to do that.
