A long while back I was contacted by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) about writing a guest post for their blog. At the time, someone else they were collaborating with was in the process of writing about post trail depression. I was bummed. This was a topic I’m so familiar with on a very intimate level, and it was the first thing that came to mind. This resulted in a bad case of writer’s block and therefore a delay in committing to a topic to pitch them.
I suppose a week later, an intern got in touch with me and said that the other blogger had decided to write about something else. Therefore, I had first dibs if I was still interested. My writer’s block was suddenly liberated! After narrowing down my word count (something I royally suck at), as well as a few nips, tucks and alterations, the final product has been approved and published! Click HERE to check it out yourself!
