Can I rant, for a moment?

I will post for real later today–with updates on my plants, some Easter photos, and some life update.

But for now, I must rant.

I wrote an article, and my editor said it needed a lot of work, and that a lot of it had to be changed, so she took me off the writer’s list–without telling me, without responding to my email that asked why she made the changes she had, and why she hadn’t asked me to make them, instead.

The problem is that the articles are almost identitical–the one I wrote, and the one she printed. Their is one paragraph added, and some language (which means, style, which is a writer’s preference, not a sign of bad writing) that is different. That’s it.

I am so angry. But, alas, it’s the real world. I shall continue to look for other writing opportunities, because I know I am a good writer, and will find work somewhere.

Thanks for reading, more later. xo.

    She stole your writing and didn’t give you credit? This is what I’m getting here, since all she did was edit it.

    This is not acceptable behavior. You should take action.

      No, she had my name on the by line as well. But she added her own, I guess to compensate for the paragraph she wrote. It was upsetting, and I am working on taking action! Thanks for the concern.

    If you need back up, just let me know.

    I’m sorry 😦 I love you and you’re a great writer. Sorry I didn’t call yesterday!
