Ramblings Mans

Starting to get real antsy about writing professionally. I am not sure if I want to get back into journalism. My ex-editor once said "Journalists are not writers, they are reporters." Then he gave me a job answering phones. Those words got me to thinking, "Am I cut out for this journalistic underworld? " I am not sure. I do not know much about politics, sports or local businesses but eagerness is stomping out the fear of rejection and this mom is bursting at the seams for a chance. My resume has collected dust which incidentally has caused breathing problems, heart palpitations and panic, nothing that a martini can't fix and a good editor. I am excited to be helping a local online news site with an every Wednesday "moms council" where three of us ladies tackle questions from discerning parents . It is not a payed gig and is lead by a local mom who freelances and produces her own "arts and entertainment" local city magazine in which I have also been helping her proofread. Baby steps, baby steps.
