What if someone told you that writing is the best part of getting published.
It almost seems backward.
You work and work. All that time goes by.
And one day you finally get someone else to print it.
That was the goal, right? Nope – the writing life was the goal.
Look behind you.
“I just try to warn people who hope to get published that publication is not all that it is cracked up to be. But writing is. Writing has so much to give, so much to teach, so many surprises. That thing you had to force yourself to do—the actual act of writing—turns out to be the best part.”
