My First Paid Writing Work!

That’s right, tonight I just turned in my first paid writing gig.  I wrote an article on why churches need websites, and some basics on how to get started with the process for LifeWay’s Deacon magazine.

Beacuse of the publishing schedule for magazines having such a long lead time, the article won’t actually see print until the Spring 08 issue.  Amazing how far in advance they do these things.

 It’s been an honor and a blessing to get to work on this; nevermind the personal excitement of being able to officially say I’m a published freelance writer!  It’s always a good day when dreams come true, no matter how it happens.  Here’s to hoping there’s more words of mine that will see print in the future!
