So far, so good!
Posted by Joanne Hayle
It’s been a few months now since I started to write professionally and without tempting fate…so far, so good.
I must think, and have thought, that I have the ability to be a writer and yet whenever a piece of work gets placed or an editor is kind enough to say that a story doesn’t require much editing or they take time to explain how something could be made stronger before they hopefully accept it, I am genuinely amazed.
I wasn’t born arrogant and so I don’t assume that editors will be bound to accept my work, I am not naive enough to think that they are sat there waiting for my story/article/verse to land on their desks to proclaim it a masterpiece and for every single yes there are a ton of no’s, as most writers know.
It’s not an easy business to be in, but the love of writing can move mountains.
So, I am a very grateful person, I am pushing ahead, working hard and making the dream a reality…with a lot of miracles and help from above.
Whatever you aspire to do, take a deep breath and try to do it…It’s really rewarding to your soul!!
Trust me, this comes from someone who had 0% confidence a year ago.
