There’s an old saying “always a bridesmaid, but never a bride”, well I have always felt the same way about being a writer — like I was writing, but never a writer.
Odd, I know.
I’ve been unsure for the past few years about my writing capabilities, but I stuck to it and God has blessed my ability to endure through this annealing process. I’ve been stretched beyond what I thought was possible for me as a writer and I can’t wait for the road ahead.
Tonight, I was published in the bilingual magazine El Palo.
For certain, I’ve learned that there is no certainty in writing. Meaning, that the path as a writer can be an ardent journey filled with turbulence mixed with a bit of extraordinary moments that lead to new and exciting opportunities.
For those that are writing and for those that may write in the future –don’t quit. Keep progressing in your discipline and learn as much as you can.
One day we may even get to read your words…
…how extraordinary that would be.
