Exciting to me, anyway. Super exciting. I’ve wanted to be a writer of once sort or another for as long as I can remember, and this summer (barring any unforeseen trouble) my very first published articles will be appearing in two magazines.
First, in July, an article I’m writing on the relationship between grizzly bears and polar bears will be out in Above & Beyond, the inflight magazine of northern Canadian airline First Air. Then in August Wisconsin Natural Resources will include an article by me on how invasive earthworms affect ground-nesting songbirds. I’ll post links to both pieces once they become available.
I want to build a time machine so I can go back and tell fifth grade me, laboriously writing and putting together a construction paper book on rainforest animals for a class project, that by the time I turn twenty-five I will have both seen a tropical rainforest with my own eyes and sold stories to real magazines. Fifth grade me would be absolutely floored by this information.
