The Sun always shines above the clouds

I'm not sure if I'm courageous or stupid. I submitted a personal essay to The Sun's Readers Write this week. I figured that it's a submission to the Readers Write section which is sort of like a letter to the editor. If my personal essay is rejected it won't hurt as bad as if I had submitted a "real" essay. Does that make sense?

The topic was Nine to Five. The content of the essay relates observations of how graphic designers are undervalued by their internal clients. There is a common misconception that anyone with a computer and some design software is a graphic designer. In the essay I explore some of these ideas in a very personal essay. It's my first essay I've submitted to The Sun.

    I love the Readers Write section in The Sun. My guess is they'll take it. But if it's not accepted, I hope you will post it here. I'm intrigued.
