Forward with the fixes

Most of my writing fits what the book says; this is encouraging. The error I made with my magazine submissions is introducing myself in paragraph one; this is akin to beginning a musical composition with parallel fifths, your work will be discarded on the spot.

The logic in my accountant’s mind told me a reader would ask, “Who’s writing this?” Wrong. I don’t do that when I read, either.

So, don’t introduce thyself. Easy fix, paragraph one.

I have three articles to fix, and then it’s submission time, once again, with intent to progress from a letter in France Magazine to a feature.
