I Be A Writer

I did it! I did it! I did it! I did it!

*Continues screaming and jumping around for five minutes*

What did I do? I published something and will get paid for it. Yay!

Brijit is an online magazine that publishes abstracts (or reviews really) of articles from other magazines. The job entails reading the article and doing a quick write up on what it is about as well as rating whether it it worth taking time out to read. The magazine is marketed towards business professionals who what to stay abreast of what is happening in the world but don’t have time to read magazines, newspapers or watch television.

Well, about a week ago I decided to sign up and submit a few abstracts and today, I got an email saying one of them is being published. Read it here:

Breaking Through the Bias

Okay so it’s not, you know, The New York Times and I can only buy lunch at McDonalds with the pay but those are my words! And I’m getting paid for them! At the beginning of the year my goal was that I would become and official freelance writer by getting paid for my writing. And I did it!

I did it! I did it! I did it!

And I couldn’t have done it without my friend’s filling my head up with crazy ideas like I could actually do it. Thank you Katie and Ms. Karen for giving me the confidence I needed to make this happen. I couldn’t have paid for a better support group. Yay!
