Woah, a Real Writing Gig!

I’ve written once or twice here about my struggle with where I want my writing to take me in the future. Do I want to be a hard-hitting journalist? (Definitely not.) Do I want to write short stories or maybe a novel? (Ehh, maybe.) Do I even want to write publicly at all? (Yeah, I’m pretty sure.)

Secretly, I still don’t know for sure where I’m going to end up eventually. But what I do know is that, after sending a few clips and links to my stuff around the Web, someone wants me to write for them!!!

Lydia is an up-and-coming online magazine for all kinds of women. They have posts for everyone–music and TV reviews, makeup and fashion advice, and even a section of thought-provoking essays.

But my favorite part? They want me to write DIY- and food-related posts. Fall-themed ones, to be exact, at least at the moment. With pictures and everything!

My head is swimming with ideas; I cannot wait to really get going with this. I’ve even got some ideas for submissions to their essays section.

Guess what, though?

I’ve already got a post live. I made some seriously amazing pumpkin gooey butter cake, and before we scarfed the whole thing down, I took some fancy pictures and sent it off. I even had to write up a little bio about myself–promise you won’t laugh when you read it?

Go check it out, you guys!!! (Sorry about the exclamation points. I’m seriously way too excited.)
