If you have been following this blog long enough, you would know by now that one of my biggest aspirations is to work as a full time writer. Bigger long-term (and impossible) goals include 1) producing a collection of poems and prose 2) being a regular columnist for an established paper or magazine and 3) joining and winning the Palanca.
Recently I was invited by a web company to join its team of homebased article writers. I have sent applications in the past to innumerable outfits and only a few considered my application, being a non-graduate of a writing-related course.
Self, this is only the beginning to a long, winding road of failures and small triumphs.
