Happy Day!

Back in January, I posted that I had submitted my first article for publication.  They stated that they would notify accepted authors on 2/29.  When March 1st came, I assumed that I was not accepted and went on my way.  I wasn’t upset, it was my first attempt and just hitting send was enough of an accomplishment for me.

This morning,  I opened my email and there was a congratulations email letting me know that my article has been accepted!  I can’t wait until the issue comes out and I can open the magazine to MY article!

At this point in my writing, I still feel like a child who needs validation.  Being accepted for the writing course and getting something published has really helped that insecurity.  I can’t wait to get home tonight and start working on some of the other articles that I’ve had mulling in my mind but put off writing.

    Congratulations. Great accomplishment. I too am trying to get published in more mainstream media. I have already had articles published in hobby magazines (US Stamp News) and other journals and newsletters. I am happy for you.

    Great news!

    I think insecurity comes along with being a writer. 🙂

    Keep up the good work.

    Absolutely wonderful! We are and will always be our own worst critics. Sometimes, I would like to think that is part of what me wants to continue striving harder, to do better. Congratulations to you!
