I wrote for a local magazine in 2014. It was a paid gig. With things getting busy I moved on to other aspects of my business. This year I decided to try again to write for local magazines in the county.
A popular one responded and was open to me being a contributing writer if it worked out that is. My test would be my first article to them. I was to do an article on Andy Warhol.
I had heard of him but knew very little. As I contacted the key-note speaker and the person in charge of the exhibit I was educated on why Warhol was so well know. The advancements he made for himself and artists that follow him was incredible.
The article won’t come out until next month, if it does, but it has to be approved first by the editor.
When I first read my assignment I did internally freak out. But as I dove into the history I was fascinated by what I was finding. It also reminded me about the joy I had as a freelance writer in 2014 and I am glad I am revisiting it once more this year.
There is so much more to writing than books and short stories. Expanding one’s view can be rewarding and just down right fun.
