Woo Hoo!!! :D

My column was just published in my local newspaper. And it looks like I may become a regular columnist! There's nothing more comforting than the world regular to a freelancer, right?

Fantastic !!!!!!! That is excactly how I started and it has turned into something which I , personally , never expected ...... Even a paper with low circulation (like where I began) will give you not only the practice (and thick skin) needed to acheive greatness (or mediacraty in my case , lol) It will give you something that will aid you in moving up (assuming this isnt the New York Times your writting for )
You will gain a portfolio of published material and more importantly connentions as Every newspaper Editor seems to know everyone in the world , and when you outgrow the paper you are with (in my experience) your current Editor will more than likely be understanding and may opt to aid you greatly .
Congrats ......

Freckles, you are my newest idol. Major congrats!

So, was there anything special you did (besides offering them a fabulous column idea) that helped you land the steady gig?
