In today's mail I received a complimentary copy of the September 2011 issue of Nature Friend magazine. This particular issue was special, since the article on page 14 was written by me! "Acrobatic Insects" started as my final assignment for the first class I took with the Institute of Children's Literature.
For those of you just starting out in writing, the journey of this article is another example showing how patience in the writing world is so important. I originally submitted the article in September 2010. I checked the status in December and received a letter this past March stating they were putting the article on hold for the next year for possible use. Thus more waiting began ... until today. Receiving the envelope in the mail was a total surprise, but so worth the wait!
