It's been a while since I've felt this proud of myself.
I really feel like I'm accomplishing some good in my life, good things that are slowly getting me towards what I want to do in life. For a while there it just felt like I was treading water.
I've just had my first stories/articles published. I couldn't be happier. I'm a writer and member of the editorial team for my local youth magazine and the first issue has just been published, full to the brim of creative articles and lovely matte pages. What's even better is that I'm working as Project Manager for the next edition, that means communicating with the publisher, designers and writers. It's pretty full on but exactly what I want.
Two other stories of mine are also getting published in my Universities magazines (we have 4, seems a bit over the top to me!). The stories are both completely different but I'm equally proud of them.
The media industry is such a tough industry to break into so I'm just glad I'm slowly getting there, teeny step by step.
