I just got a copy of my first paying print article. Well, yes I have gotten ‘paid’ for other articles but this one earned at least 10 times more than anything that I’ve published online. I’ve just submitted my second assignment to them. Where can you read my illustrious work? Unfortunately it is in a certain newsletter for gunsmiths, so…not exactly available to the general public but I’d be happy to email you a copy.
I also was just selected to write articles for a blog, again for a decent rate. The first week will be my test to see if they want be writing on a regular basis for them.
The negative of all this is of course the fact that I also have a full time job that requires a minimum of 40 hours a week. My days have become awful full. My hope is that at some point I won’t have time for that full time job and I’ll just write full time AND make a decent income at it as well.
So far, things are looking pretty good that direction. I’ll keep you posted.
