Fever Pitch

I've reached fever pitch, furiously pitching ideas to the surely waiting and loving arms of editors nationwide...

With my wedding in less than a month, I'll probably start foetal rocking if any recent pitches actually evolve into real, paying jobs. Notwithstanding, here's who I've contacted in the last few days:
  • Shop Til You Drop magazine, offering an article idea, "Shopping Myths Exposed".
  • emPOWER magazine, submitting a careers article, "Finding the Write Life". (Joy, oh joy, you can submit an article directly to their magazine or online content for their web site without querying first!)
  • Cosmo Bride magazine, offering an article idea, "The Budget Bride Guide to Celebrity Style".
Hold onto your (Prada) hats, inspired by my recent book purchase, 102 Ways to Earn Money Writing 1,500 Words or Less, I've also written song lyrics! Two songs, actually. Now I've just gotta work out how and where to pitch such an animal. Once I do, I figure I'll just sit back and wait for them to be picked up by Pink, Lady Gaga or Beyonce. Totally.

My other slice of news is the snazzy new decor here at BECKS AND THE CITY. Let me know what you think -- chic, or sh*t?!


  1. Hey there, I am your newest follower. I am also an aspiring writer, hoping to get published. I'm sure we'll have lots to share. Will definitely be back for another read of your blog. Good Luck

  2. Hey Marie,

    Thanks for following! Hope your writing is going great guns.

    I would love to hear what sorts of things on Becks and the City would be useful to you. I am writing this blog partly as a tool to keep me motivated, but also as a (hopefully) useful resource for other writers.

    Good luck with your quest to get published. : )
