My first article that I submitted for publication was finally published.
After going through the publishing process of pitching an idea, submitting, having editors review the submission and make changes, someone decided that what I had created has quality.
This isn’t a paid article. Millions of people didn’t read it. Thousands didn’t share it.
But none of that matters.
What matter is someone else validating my work. It’s affirmation that the stuff I’m putting out in the world isn’t fruitless. I’m not a narcissist that doesn’t have a clue about life. There are others that can relate and want to read what I’m putting out there.
It’s a humbling and grateful experience.
I can’t wait to have more good news. Every small step is a step towards the ultimate goal.
Once my name’s out then I can start giving the voiceless a voice.
Here’s to the first step in speaking for the unspoken!
