Write On Grrrl

Voice of Empowerment. Not reason.

My First Paid Writing Gig

Drum roll please.

March 5, 1988. By-line: Providence Journal. Age: 16. Payment: $5. Word Count: 13. (Mmm-hmm. Indeed. That works out to a whopping 39 cents a word.) Sick sense of humor: Clearly intact. Dream and determination: Just getting out of the starting gate.
