Now I have not – yet – written a book, but there are few things like seeing yourself in print for the first time.
Even in my limited experience with magazines.
Someone else – who is in the business of sharing ideas – thought that what you had to say was worthy of sharing.
It’s a validation. – a fresh, cool, breeze in the midst of the creative march.
Even online, it’s pretty cool having your work accepted by a big publisher…
“I understood immediately the thrill of seeing oneself in print. It provides some sort of primal verification: you are in print; therefore you exist.”
–Anne Lamott, Bird By Bird
