Good news week

I received some good great news earlier this week. The Dominion newspaper in Wellington, New Zealand confirmed they’re planning to publish a travel article I submitted for their consideration a few weeks ago.

One of the personal goals I set myself at the start of the year was to get an article published – and be paid for it.

So far I’ve had several pieces published in a variety of hard copy and on-line publications, but this will be my first paying gig.

It’s not so much the (small) sum of money that’s important to me – but that professional editors think my work is interesting and well-written enough to pay money for.

So this week I’m officially one happy man.

I’ll post a copy of the article once it’s published, hopefully in the next week or so.

    Thanks Beks. The cash will probably pay for one family breakfast at Joe’s Garage so it’s not time to give up my day job just yet.

    Well done Bruce! I’m sure you’ll have many more published (and paid for) in the future.
