I have not yet, but I believe a poem I wrote will appear in a youth poetry collection. Kind of cool but I just wish I could get my stuff out there and make a living writing.
Has anyone here been published? If so, could you tell me your journey on doing so and its rewards? And if you have not, how are you attempting to do so?
I've entered several contests and submitted my work to several literary magazines and all I can do is wait and see if anything happens. The waiting is sort of strenuous on me and I know I shouldn't let it be so but I can't really help it. I just really want to make a living doing what I love.
