Last year, I wrote about “taking my writing further“, beyond the safe space of this blog.
Well, guess what.
I received my first acceptance email 🥺😳
It’s a fledgling local project, a prose and poem anthology, started by two twenty-somethings eager for change, passionate about the written word. So naturally, especially if you’re me, it seemed too good to be true.
But well, the book is being printed. All the proceeds are going to local NGOs, which elevates this already dizzying experience to heights that have me shaking from fear and exhilaration both.
And my name’s on it somewhere, among 49 other featured writers.
So thank you.
Thank you for reading, thank you for your kind words spread over 4 years now, according to WordPress. My writing would have forever remained between the lines of my notebooks without you.
Note: I hope you’re all doing well, wherever you are.
