I can not even start to explain the satisfaction and rewarding sentiments that came with the email I received informing me of my published post.
This story started back at an Art Walk in December. It has very slowly, with countless hours of research, writing and interviews on my part, snowballed into the published piece that it is now.
Even after the editor agreed to my pitch, I still thought it might be a long shot after sending him my finished piece. Given my recent success rate at getting stories published I have decided it is best to keep up my guard and skepticism. The freelance writing industry is a tough place.
I have been in California the past few days on another mini west coast vacation with some friends and the news couldn’t have come at a better time. The overwhelming joy I already felt was exemplified by the people I was with and the place I was in.
I’m so happy for Wiley, Jon and Henry and the extra coverage and attention that this will hopefully bring for the VSP. But I am also happy and proud of myself. I needed this very badly. It’s been a long time coming. Finally, I can believe a little bit more and truly know that this is the start at a very long, rewarding journey of success for myself.
