via FORTUNATELY/UNFORTUNATELY: A Celebration of Submission Responses, June to mid-August 2019 — Pamela Hobart Carter, WRITER

Please read the article above from writer friend and published author, Pamela Hobart Carter. She shares the ups and downs…but ultimately ups in this writing lifestyle we vulnerably wade through. She is an inspiration to me, and I hope she’ll become an inspiration to you.
