Yesterday I received a package in the mail that contained two copies of my article that is being published in CCCC Forum. It was amazing to read the article. I did use one word I wished I hadn’t, but that’s not terrible. And my middle initial didn’t make it into my name. I would like it there, but it’s still okay.
I looked at the three page article and realized that it took me over forty hours to write and edit. It may have taken more than that, but those are the hours I remember.
It is so gratifying to see one’s work in print. I am thrilled.
I hope it happens more often.
