I’ve been writing this blog since 2006 and, before that, pouring words into wild Christmas letters that took so long to read my friends were still working through them come New Year’s. All this fun writing is great. But recently, I decided to start submitting essays to a few publications, just to see what that process of writing, editing, submission, and rejection feels like.
I’ll tell you when the process feels really good: when something gets accepted.
Last week, I heard from Mamalode.com. They accepted an essay I submitted. Then they let me know it would be published on October 7th.
Friends, it went live this morning, and I’m just so happy.
