Risk

I found this helpful on Image Journal: “the risk of sharing work with us”.

What I say there may be an oxymoron, for why is the risk of sharing work with them helpful?

Let me bring in the context. They’re saying submitting work is a risk: when someone shares their work with an editor, it is a risk.

Sharing one’s work with an editor is exhilarating and nerve wracking. One doesn’t know the outcome, but is excited nevertheless. A risk in other words.

Yes, risk is the right word; the word risk illuminates what I do when I submit articles, stories, and devotions.

And Image Journal appreciate that in a writer as do many other journals.
