I’ve often said, ‘I dream of being a writer’ but lately, I’ve changed that line of thought to
I’m a writer with a dream.
This year I’ve decided to stop ‘just’ dreaming and actually start putting some action behind my words.
I decided to submit a post to The Mighty. At first I wrote it just for The Mighty. I submitted it. Waited 3 weeks and then got scared and deleted it. I decided to post it here. After that, I started thinking about this dream of mine and I felt so silly for deleting it. I mean…if I am to be a writer I have to get used to putting myself out there and facing rejection. I have to be ok with that. So I resubmitted it about a month ago.
Yesterday I was contacted and told they wanted to publish it. The email said it would be looked at by an editor and I should see it published within 2 weeks. Well it was published today!!!
I’m super proud of the article and that it was chosen to be shared by The Mighty. But more than that…I’m proud that I put myself out there. I’m proud that I worked up the nerve to send the article in. I’m proud that I chose to try!!
I’d love for you to check it out. You may have already read it here, but there is no harm in looking anyway. 😉
Thanks for reading!
