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.
