I can relate to the second paragraph. I camped out there a long while. Turns out the secret is to write the stuff that screams to be written. The emotion comes across better.
You're a top writer in Feminism -- that's awesome and what a great start!! May I make a suggestion? Add more publications to your list. I think you'll do well in Fearless She Wrote and Illumination, too.
I have no doubt you'll get there. If I can ever help in any way, just let me know. Tag me in your feminist posts, so I can come read and share, too.
Nice to meet you! :)
