Even me?

It was quite a revelation – for some reason, I’d thought all magazines were staff written. Or at least written by famous writers. What an eye-opener the truth was! I picked up magazines on newsstands with a fresh eye.

I hope you enjoy my little journey, as I describe what led to my first, thrilling article sale. I’d also love it if you would like to leave a comment there, telling me about your own first sale, or any other sale of an article or personal experience story (family friendly, please) that excited you. It is a real accomplishment, and I’d like to rejoice with you in that! Tell my readers the title of your article and the print magazine it was published in.

Also, to all my faithful subscribers to ~ if you’d like to catch future writing tips from me, do subscribe to  Eventually I will shift all my content from here to that site. I’ll let you know when that happens.

Write on!
