#88 Possible ‘article’? Woo Hoo!!!


A huge positive about the corporate world – yes read that again – there were positives about it – was that it taught me that being pushy was a good thing.  I was always pushy and opinionated – or as I learned to call it ‘passionate’ 🙂

Now that I am writing features and trying to sell them to newspapers and magazines – well that tenacity has proven to be a huge boost.

Today I spoke with the news editor at the www.examiner.ie and told him the outline of my Edith on the Titanic story – when I tried to ‘close’ the sale – did he think that would fit in with his paper?  Could I send it in for him to have a look at – so he said yes, it was exactly what they were looking for and yes send it in.

Now – it might end up in their shredder – but it another positive.  So now I am looking at my 2000 word piece editing it down to the 600 words that the Irish Examiner Editor wants.

Stay Calm and Carry On!!  I’m on the up – well at least for today 🙂
