First Writing Contract
I'm so damn excited to be in receipt of my first free-lance writing contract. I worked for a daily newspaper back in the 1990's and covered everything from murder's to political campaigns and chocolate festivals, but it didn't have the same ring-a-ding-ding as the title of free-lance writer. It's taken me a long time to take this step in my writing career and I honestly regret all the wasted time I spent debating whether or not I had the chops to make it in this field. I'm convinced now but not because I got hired as a writer, but because the words are flowing out of me so easily now. There is nothing holding me back this time out. I wish I could be 41 forever. I know that sounds crazy, especially when most people in this country spend thousands of dollars to recapture their youth. I'm wiser, more confident and feel as though the world is within my reach. I'm there, its been confirmed. I'm a writer! Look for me soon in boho magazine.
