I learned that you don't send a story to a magazine, you send a query. Its a "pretend I haven't already written it, but would you be interested in this story, if I did?" then you pitch it. Which I will try to do for Hour Magazine: Dear Madam, Creative ideas, never manifested are impotent. It's the courage to share the creation that is admirable, the act of sharing that wins our attention and praise. These conclusions, I have always known, but lived them out again on top of a roof, free hand painting a huge circle, black on white.
