I’ve been so busy that I’ve forgotten to share my exciting news: I published my first magazine article this month! I received an assignment from a local magazine to write a 2000-word article on styles of worship music. I enjoyed conducting the research, interviewing music pastors, and attending different church services. I was so relieved just to turn it in that I didn’t really feel much excitement about seeing it in print. That is, until December hit. I frequented my local Barnes and Noble until I finally spotted the new cover on the magazine stand.
My heart skipped a beat as I picked it up and first turned to the contributor’s page. My photo and bio! I think I grinned from that point until I went to bed. I am so appreciative of everyone who encouraged me. Now I’m off to complete a second article for the same publication.
Can I really say it now? I’m a freelance writer.
