An Amazing Feeling
If you hadn’t noticed, I’m excited. I am a born writer. It is a talent God gave me, but I suppressed for twenty years. Always in the back of my head, though… I knew giving up writing was a mistake.
When I decided to take up writing again in 2010, my focus was to be published. In January of 2012, I decided that it was going to be this year. I was going to do it.
I threw everything I had into that goal… and here I am!
And believe it or not, it only gets better. A little over a year ago I did a beta read for a woman who has since become one of my best friends. We’ve been on a roller coaster ride together, both striving toward that elusive publication credit at the end of the rainbow.
I am so excited to say that Jenny Keller Ford’s Amulet of Ormisez – The work that had me questioning my own submission, will also be included in J. Taylor Publishing’s Make Believe Anthology, due out just before Christmas of this year.
It’s fantastic to be published, but it’s even better to be published alongside your friend. Instead of one of us being excited, but at the same time consoling the other, we were both able to celebrate together.
What an amazing feeling.
