Time for another one of my goals in life that I am determined to accomplish—I really want to get an article published in a magazine. The reasoning behind it is simple really—I have always thought it would be exciting to be the person that writes all those articles which hundreds of thousands of people read. I don’t think that this is an unreachable goal either.
There is just something about the idea of getting something I write published in a traditional medium that intrigues me. When I was younger, I had dreamed that I would be the one in the back of the magazine writing all the product reviews for games and gadgets.
I wouldn’t mind having my own column; however, I would simply be satisfied with having anything I write displayed in a magazine. I consider this as one of my goals in life. I want to get something of mine published in a major print media form.
I’ve been doing a tiny bit of research on how I would accomplish this, but it seems similar to a job application. I would pitch my idea to the correct editor, and basically I would explain why it would be a good article for the magazine and its readers. If the idea is accepted, I would be assigned the job. After that, I would be writing.
Apparently, freelance magazine writers make anywhere from a few cents to several dollars per word. Nice chunk of change in my opinion. Although, I am not interested in becoming a freelance magazine writer. Just interesting little factoid to know about.
Anyways, I just wanted to get that out of my system.
