Championing Our Words

My writing dream all began when an innocent teacher said the fateful words, “Wow! You’re a good writer!”

And a monster was born.

I’ve been writing since middle school, more seriously since high school, and first tried to get published over five years ago. (*I’m still not yet published.) Over that period of time, I’ve made a lot of  mistakes and learned many valuable lessons. But here I am still plugging away at my writing & publishing dream. Why do we writers torture ourselves this way?

We have words inside us that need to be heard.

I’ll continue writing even if I never reach the illustrious level of “published.” Even if no one ever reads my words (I know someone will, my sister is my biggest fan,) regardless, I have to write.

So… How Do We Champion Our Words? 

After long years down this rough road, I’ve learned a few thing that bring me closer to publication every passing day. And, guess what? I’m going to share those secrets!
