Deep down, I always knew that postgrad study didn’t support my dreams. So at the last minute, I withdrew from my course and decided to be a professional writer. Woo!
Before long, my first exciting opportunity came knocking. Our Daily Rant Mag welcomed me aboard as a regular contributor and I published my first opinion article with them last week. I wrote about Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie and International Women’s Day. You can read my article and follow Our Daily Rant Mag on Facebook for updates in your feed.
It’s weird writing in a different style for a magazine. I want to make the most of the opportunity to grow as a writer. Now that I don’t have uni to motivate me to write, I’m getting my friends to hold me accountable for the work I produce each week. My bestie has a great sense of humour, so I’m testing out my jokes on her. Most are super lame, but I’m learning.
I’ve got some super-secret awesome stuff coming up, so watch this space! I want to share my experience with you, and support your writing in any way I can. Let me know where I can read your work, follow you, and encourage you to reach your writing goals. I want to get behind anyone trying to do their own thang in a busy online world. I can’t wait to see what this year will bring!
