I could not explain my feelings when Charlotte told me that I was in the trial team. I was so thrilled at the thought to be working with amazing, fascinating people and to be a part of such a fabulous magazine, but I knew that it was just a trial, and I had no idea what would happen in the future. Mary had me doing tasks, and it was harder than I thought - I had to write articles, change wordings, make sure my article was perfect; I spent tiring, back-stiffening hours on Skype and Microsoft Word.
I finally sent in my article, and a few days after that, Mary told me that it was rejected in the mockup. I was a bit upset, but it was just a practice article, after all. I took Mary and Charlotte's 'words of wisdom' by heart, and I have learnt that being a part of a magazine is more than writing articles and having the perfect graphics. Eternity is much more than that.
See you soon,
