A Blog for Writers: Women and Adversity, My Story
What obstacle did I have to overcome when I decided to be a writer?
1) Thinking my first novel would be accepted by an agent or publisher
2) Believing that only the major magazines were outlets for my stories
3) Accepting the fact that editors cut, reject and have the final say about the story
I submitted my “Wives of Bears Football Players” to my local newspaper, The Star, in Chicago’s South Suburbs, and I’ve been getting assignments ever since.
