I just received an acceptance from the senior editor at the Saturday Evening Post. She is negotiating a contract with me on one of my humorous essays. I am beyond thrilled.
This proves that you don't know until you try. The worst that can happen is rejection, and the word, "NO" stings, but it doesn't stop me in my tracks.
Don't let it stop you, either. Take a chance. Try your hand at something new or that you have always wanted to do.
I am wishing each of you success in whatever you endeavor to achieve.
