That Big Day When You are Officially Published

It is official.  “Hail to the Chief” and parades official.  I am published!  I recently stumbled on an opportunity to freelance write for Occupy Magazine and I was accepted.  That alone was a pleasant surprise, considering I don’t have the kind of experience that is usually required.  So, they accepted me and I began the journey of finding some news to write about.

You can read my article at your leisure.  I also just received a follow-up email stating my story has been reprinted already!  I just stand in awe.

Research & Romance

I have been reflecting on the writing process over the last few days.  Part of my writing involves nonfiction, research based writing.  This is mostly for my classes, though I try to bid for jobs on E-lance and other forums to bring in a little extra cash.  I imagine that for most people, research can be tedious and boring.  For myself, it is an adventure.  I equate it to almost like an RPG game.  I can sit for hours researching without any writing in mind, simply to inform and learn.  But, I must admit, my creative writing is akin to a romance.

It woos me.  It calls me to sit and imagine and write.  Its an uncovering and discovering on a completely different level from research, like two lovers spending a lifetime learning each other inside and out.  This is new for me.  As I branch out of my nonfiction style, I am slowly learning more about this new romance.  It has taken some change and a different perspective.  But I am glad for expanding beyond nonfiction.  It’s worth it.
