In today’s guest post, Literary Mama reader Heather Villa shares her journey of leaving her job and becoming a mother and writer.
I worked at a government job, and from my second-story window I could see the door of a magazine publisher.
During my one of my lunch breaks I passed a woman walking along the street. She looked familiar. But when I thought more about it, I realized she was the editor from the magazine (outside my window) I so admired. Her headshot – with a contemplative expression – featured next to her editor’s letters, graced the monthly issues.
I wanted to write for that magazine.
