I came across the application for More Love Letters (MLL) accepting writers for their blog in a Facebook group. Writing applications for blogs have always scared me. Filling this one out solidly moved me out dreaming about writing for others and firmly into the Writer category.
I received an email from More Love Letters saying they wanted me to submit a trial piece on “What it feels like and looks like to move again after just a year and two months.” Complete with guidelines and a deadline. My first reaction was tears, closely followed by, “Why this topic?” (I think, in the application I had to submit four or five topics I could write about, and this was one of the ones I submitted.) And then I got to work.
