#HIGP is an ongoing blog series I'm working on in which I--surprise!--tell the story of how I got published. I'm doing this with something of a pay-it-forward philosophy, hoping that this information might be useful to some people out there. The writing process--and the road to publication--are both extremely individual, relative things, but learning about how they work for different people was always helpful to me. So, without further ado, check it!
