I want to be a writer. I want to be a writer that gets paid to write.
I've done some research and found a book that supposedly tells you about editors of magazines, how to send them queries and what they specifically look for. But, I've read mixed reviews about it. Some say it is the best book and it got them published, others say it is republished every year with the same information.
I found a contest in Real Simple magazine. 1500 words or less to write about The Most Important Day of My Life. I entered. After January 9, I can send them a self addressed stamped envelope and find out who won and who will be published.
Maybe I won't check. I have 3.5 months to decide. Unless I get an email...
