    Default I got an interview....

    I'm so excited! I posted at the beginning of the year that I wanted to get some of my writing published this year and I am on my way!!

    I actually got one article published in a regional newsletter called Friends of Missouri Midwives but I didn't get paid and my friend is the editor so I wasn't really counting it, kwim. It was great though because when I sent article queries to publishers I was able to send them a sample of published work.

    So today, just a few minutes ago in fact, I got an email from an editor I've been communicating with for a while; she read my article and my blog and liked the idea I pitched her. She wants to do a final face to face interview with me this week before officially hiring me. This is a paid article in a widely distributed paper. It's a free paper that pays its expenses with ads but it has readership across our entire region, unlike local papers that are, well, local. The editor mentioned that they are always looking for regular contributers so that is a plus too.

    And one of the best parts is that I am also an amateur photographer and since this paper has a small budget their columnists and reporters also take their own pictures. I get to do the two things I love best and I am going to get PAID for it!!! I am just so very excited.
