QuoteAmelia Wentworth wondered about many things as she made her way into the city. One was how much money she had in her pockets to feed and house herself. Another was whether she might get mugged in this place. A few of the thoughts led into making it big in the city. The last one was a nuisance about whether she could make it in the city. That last one she pushed to the back of her head, hoping it would not haunt her because of the last minute decisions she made. Not only had she dropped out of college to pursue a career in novel writing but she had packed up that same day, got into her junk yard of car and drove all the way to Philadelphia. A place where she hoped would accept her and have editors and publishing companies throwing themselves to put her work out.She was not arrogant or thought highly of herself but she had to think of herself as somebody if she wanted to get her work published in the cutthroat industry that was novel publishing. Though first she needed to think about finding a place to live, a job and maybe some food stand to buy a burger or a hot dog to feed her for the moment. Stopping at the nearest place which was a park, she prayed there was a cheap vendor selling food that would not give her the stomach flu and have her end up in the hospital. If Amelia thought about it, she had only enough to get her through for another day before she was in desperate for any type of job. She was even ready to shout out loud to see if anyone would hire her. What kind of female gives up everything for writing? Well, for her it was the chance to get her voice heard in the novel industry.
