I love to write and read.  To become published in a magazine would be wonderful.  So, I constantly write poetry and send them to Teen Ink with high hopes that it's worthy of being "magazine material".  Of course pride comes before destruction;  is that why I never make the cut, because I'm too prideful of my work?  Or is another way of telling me practice makes perfect?


I read the FAQ's almost all the time, reading the steps to get published.  Getting an idea of the work that gets published in their magazine is one the steps.  So, that's what I do.  I read all kinds of articles on their website thinking, hmm, maybe that's what I should be writing about.  But I fail to realize the real reason why that specific article was chosen; it was orginal, and now I realize that magazine material is writing something original and writing what YOU care about and  not what other pepole care about.  I guess I should start trying that.

I can connect to this, so much. I haven't yet looked at the FAQ's, lol. But maybe, I should check them out. I've never tried to get published, but when I was recently a new member, I would always hope that I would be published. Lol, I remember. But now, I just post my writing and now hope that people are inspired and that I can somehow help them. Haha, I think I'm just being confusing, sorry. I don't know how to explain, lol. Anways, wonderful and amazing article. People should just writer their own, origina writings and if it gets published, it gets published. :) Lol, I hope I make sense. I agree with what you're saying, and it's absolutely true. Your article is well-written and wonderfully written, too. You do have such a talent and light and greatness in you. You are awesome, haha. :) Thank you so much, for sharing this, my friend. :)
