In case you missed these incredible posts.

I'm linking here to two incredible blog posts I read yesterday. They were on drastically different topics, but both had a personal honesty and eloquence that resonated with me long after I finished reading.

Libba Bray's post about World AIDS Day just blew me away. What a beautiful, heartbreaking story. I've been trying to describe it further, but nothing measures up -- so please, read it for yourself. (Link.)

Natalie Whipple's post about struggling through 15 months on submission spoke directly to every writer's greatest fear and reminded us all why we keep trying. If you have time, scroll through the comments, too. (Link.)

I'm so grateful that they shared their stories, and I hope you take the time to read them, and that they are as meaningful to you as they were to me.


  1. Natalie's post was brave and rang so true. Publishing is a hard, hard road sometimes, and often it's scary to talk about the specifics. Thank you, Natalie, for your honesty.

  2. I read Natalie's post. It was so honest and true.

  3. Both posts really were amazing - I'd already read Natalie's but Libba's was new to me - both beautiful, raw and inspiring pieces of writing. Thanks for pointing me towards Libba's post.

  4. Colene, Caroline, and Natalie - Replies via email!

    Guinevere - So glad you loved Libba's post!
