Hello! Misunderstood is on temporary hold. In a moment of bravery, I submitted Misunderstood to the NY Times. A couple of summers ago I read a great book by Marion Roach Smith called The Memoir Project. I subscribe to her site and receive her emails. In her latest email, she encourages writers to consider submitting essays to the NY Times. She featured an article called VISION QUEST by an author named Evan Cooper, which was impressive and engaging.
I decided to follow Marion’s suggestion and go for it.
I submitted Misunderstood on 10/8/19. The NY Times requires all articles to be exclusive to them. That means, their articles cannot appear anywhere else. If I haven’t heard back from them by Monday, 10/14, I’ll post Misunderstood on my blog.
Typically I wish for more subscribers, but in this moment when I know my subscribers will see this announcement, I’m wishing this were only visible to those who stumble on to my blog site. I guess that means two things. You’re the first to know when I fail, and the first to know when I succeed.
As always, thank you for reading!
