Also though, I feel like I need to give another thank you- to Margaret Atwood. Yes…THE Margaret Atwood. I literally opened up my article by mentioning her!
With nothing more than a hope and a prayer, I tweeted the article at her on twitter- knowing that this is subject matter that she often finds interesting. What I was hoping for in my distant dreams, however, I dared not even so much as consider. However, less than an hour letter, I got a wonderful message in my e-mail. The subject header reads:
“Margaret E. Atwood (@margaretatwood) just retweeted one of your tweets!”
Thanks to her, my writing has reached a huge audience. Thanks to her, my plight to write might have just taken an upward slant. It’s still going to be a battle…but I’ll never forget this, and what it meant to me.
