I was minding my own business, reading the paper this afternoon, when I stumbled upon a captivating article.
I suppose I’m a bit biased. I did write it, after all.
Travel writing is my passion. I am constantly entering short story competitions and knocking on publishers doors.
After a 6 week spread in the Caithness Courier (based in Wick, Scotland) last fall, my next run is on it’s way in Horsham, England.
So how do I do it? It’s simple, really. I ask.
I have a portfolio, including sample works and recommendations, that I am constantly building up. I have an angle – a brilliant idea that I can sell. And I simply don’t take no for an answer. It is my unrelenting perseverance and motivation that secures me a position as a columnist wherever I may find myself around the world. One day, you might pick up your local newspaper and find my name. Today, I did.
Just wanted to share my hiliarious adventure with a fellow traveler. Hope you enjoy mine as much as I have enjoyed yours.
