Why am I bouncing excitedly off walls? Well, because I have my first ever piece of published work ... that's why.
Ok... so its a teeny little travel article as opposed to an award winning, hard hitting, journalistic piece ... and it was a voluntary, non-paid review, rather than instantly making my bank manager jump for joy and pee his pants ... but still, my name is in print, and this makes me happy.
Its in U Magazine, which is a fortnightly mag that offers you the chance to write your own travel review, and if its decent, they'll print it. They don't pay, but you will get a really awesome Lonely Planet travel guide to every single country in the world, and sure tis something decent to add to the auld CV, if writing is your thang.
