From Blog to Glossy

Forgive the victory lap, but this photo signifies the best birthday present a wannabe-writer like myself can ever receive. It's the January edition of NPPA's News Photographer Magazine, featuring a slighly tweaked article I penned as a blog post several months ago. Not only is it the first time I've ever been officially published, I even got paid for the damn thing! Whatsmore, they even plugged my blog address and included a couple of pictures. How cool is that? Don't answer - just know that your friendly neighborhood lenslinger isn't quite as grumpier as usual. For a while, anyway. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to fill out my NPPA membership application. Otherwise, I'll never lay hands on all the future issues I hope to weasel my work into. More cognac!

Congrats on the first of (hopefully) many articles. Maybe you'll eventually take Andy Rooney's spot on 60 Minutes.

Very cool, Sling. You definitely have the writing chops for this.

"wannabe-writer"? No. You ARE a writer who has just been afraid to go beyond the safety of blogging. Hope this is a beginning. You have much futher to go. Brenda Bowers

So...what are you going to spend all that money on?!?!?!?

Congratulations Stewart!

A good picture to go along with the quality writing.

Maybe it's time for you to start shopping for a literary agent?
