You know what you can do

This message is for

the editors

who could not see

the beauty of my prose

the wit of my voice

or the wisdom of my ideas

I will keep writing

I will keep learning

and one day

you will want my work

But until then

You know what you can do

    Jeannine – When I started writing I was amazed at how good I was. (Sure, I’d been writing reports, plans, marketing copy, emails and white papers for years but I never considered it writing. It was part of the job.) Six years later, I’m amazed at how bad I was. Take care – Susan

    • I know I have much to learn, but I think at that moment you send your work out to be published, you really have to believe in yourself as a writer, whatever the world might say. Besides, it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t snark about it at least a little 🙂
