I'm Published!! Cosmopolitan Bride Spring 2010


Knowing my article, "8 Negotiating Tips Every Bride Needs to Know", was slated for the August Cosmopolitan Bride, I started feverishly checking the mag's web site and bugging my newsagency weeks ago. Last Monday, the web site showed the new issue. Never mind I was at work, I shot down and bought it and then bragged to the news-agents, my colleagues and strangers in the elevator about my success.

I carried the magazine around all day like a blankie, reading and re-reading the article. My words. In print. With stylish pictures and funky lettering. A breakout box. I lunched with it and narrowly stopped short of sleeping with it. But I was tempted.

What to do next? Frame it? Put the tear-sheet in some sort of portfolio setup? One thing's for sure -- I won't hush up about it for quite some time!


  1. Blogger is having some problems .. so sorry If I'm duplicating my comment...

    Congrats! I can only imagine what a wonderful feeling it must be to see your words in print .. As an aspiring write myself, I can only imagine its a feeling beyond words. HHL
