YES YOU CAN!
Trust me, if plucked up the nerve to press send on a submission email. Anyone can do it.
Yes, you might be rejected. But right now, the first step is to step into the arena. Don’t wait for perfection, because that’s just an armor that you think will protect you. Listen to Nike, just do it.
(Ironically, the first piece of mine ever published was me lamenting the fact that I was a creative writing teacher encouraging my students to write and submit, but never plucking up the nerve to do it myself.)
