Real Writer!

I officially feel like a real writer today. I submitted a feature I had written and was contacted by the editor to discuss the various things in more detail.  Yes, I thought hanging up the phone.  This was the moment I had been waiting for I felt like a real writer.

I'm doubly pleased because it is the first article that I have actually pitched as an outline first.  So the course must be teaching me something right because what ever I did, it worked.  Also the magazine is a really well known woman's weekly which as a beginner is no easy nut to crack.

I successfully sold my article, negotiated the terms and I am one happy girl.  It's given me a massive motivation to get cracking and turn some of those ideas that have been languishing on the notepad into saleable work.

What a start to my year. I just hope it continues and is not beginners luck.

  2. That's excellent news, well done. I have yet to get anything published but it's stories like this that keep me plugging away. It'll be me one day!
