Well, it has happened. I'm published.
Yes, you heard that correctly. I have just had my first article published in a real magazine. Is that too funny or what?
I am now on the staff of NAME IT! magazine- A fledgling publication here in the Baltimore area.
I am, apparently, their LIFESTYLE reporter. Whatever that's supposed to be. Actually, it can be anything that I want it to be. I have free reign here.
You cannot imagine how I felt opening up that magazine for the first time. There's even a photo of me at the top of my column. Did you get that? MY COLUMN.
They also published 3 photos, which I took to accompany the article. (I took 59 photos to begin with). The publisher was particularly impressed with the photography and suggested that I may want to do more for some of their other articles. Is he kidding or what?
Who knows where any of this may lead. In the meantime I better think of my next topic. Any suggestions?
What the hell WAS I thinking?
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
