Hi and, welcome back to the MFRW52week blog challenge. This weeks topic is opened doors or closed doors. I sat here scratching my head for a long time. What the heck does this mean? I am stumped.
Does it mean do you prefer open or shut doors in your home? I like the shut. I have am a bit OCD and I go nuts if someone leaves a cabinet door open or a door half-open. Now the entry door is another story. When it is nice outside I open mine since it is in the office so I can see out and it lightens my office. Molly and the cats fight over the pillow in front of it to look out too.
Career wise I have had a few doors slammed in my face. I submitted two stories to two different publishers and was rejected. As I have learned more I see my mistakes and why the stories were rejected. One of them even sent me a letter and told me of the mistakes and to fix them and resubmit she would review and give me a second chance. I never did. I just put the story in an unfinished pile and I may work on it at another time. The other was for an anthology and they only chose so many. Both of these publishers have closed their doors so it was a blessing in disguise. I still have the rights to them and didn’t have to fight for them back.
I am considering self-publishing with my current story so that is an open door as I don’t have to worry about a publisher rejecting me. I still may submit someday and face the doors again.
Do you face doors opening and closing?
