So I just finished up my first five articles for a career-themed magazine that launches in September. The editor seemed pretty happy about my submissions, which is cool.
The funny thing is - I'm really not much of a writer. I just kinda think of things and start typing. My speling and grammar really suck. It's all stream of consciousness.
I think back to all those email communications I wrote for the radio station I used to work at; and they had pretty much the same feel. Just whatever was on my mind. My dog, the fights, footy, TV, music, movies, whateves. Those emails went out to over 300, 000 people... but I designed them to feel like it was a one on one relationship. (Note: I'm actually surprised that of all the stuff other media copied from the station, this 'style' of audience communication wasn't one of them) It was 'just an email between friends.' It seemed to really work. After all, the database in question was only 14,000 members when I found it) I wonder if readers of this new magazine will get the same vibe. Once those words get officially published, I'll share them with everyone. Would love to hear what you think.
Anyhoo... Not sure if I'll actively search out writing opportunities... Probably not. like I said, I'm not much of a writer.
cheers for reading.
