Starting a Writing Career, the Hard Way!
In my early 20's, I left the safety of my corporate
job with a major oil company in Chicago to
pursue my first love - horses! After training under
professionals for more than 10 years (from 8 - 18)
I knew that what I really wanted to do with my life
was teach. So, in my early 20's I bought a horse
farm in the Midwest and taught thousands of
lessons in the years that followed. After leaving
the farm, I returned to Chicago and decided to
take a stab at writing for horse-related
publications. This would be the best way to teach
thousands of riders at the same time and I could
earn a living doing it.
During that first year, I received almost exactly
100 rejection letters. Because I knew that I knew
the topic that I was writing about, inside and out,
I realized that the reason I wasn't getting
published HAD TO BE for a reason that had
nothing to do with my writing.
Turned out I was right, but it took a long time
before someone told me what that secret was!
