In January, I was forwarded a News Letter from a friend at Scribblers (my local writers group). The News Letter informed me that an online magazine that supports writers was worried they were not getting any submissions. I posted about this on my blog to encourage others to submit articles: http://goo.gl/WSScY
On 20 February 2012, I decided to follow my own advice and submitted an article "Struggle" to Writing Raw for consideration. On 21 March 2012, they emailed me to say they planned to include it in their April edition but needed me to write a Bio. So, on the 25 March 2012, I worked on writing my first Bio: http://goo.gl/9b3AA
I was very excited as I waited for my article to be published: http://goo.gl/AP3YL
I would recommend, to anyone to passionate about writing, to give it a go. I honestly didn't think I would get anywhere with it but now I'm published. Next time, I think I'll spend more time editing as I don't think it's my best work but it has boosted my confidence and I'd happily try writing an article again.
Best of all, it was fun and didn't cost me a thing.
I guess I best update my bio to include my recent published article...
