The Beauty Of The Written Word

I used to aspire to see my image in magazines. Like many other girls I felt that I had something special to offer. And now I’ve realized that I do have something. But it’s not the way I look.

Seeing my name in print above an article that I’ve written is one of the most gratifying feelings I’ve known. The hours of writing, re-writing, editing, adding words, taking those words back out, and proof reading that go into these articles is mind numbing.

But then one day a magazine shows up in my mailbox that I get to scan through until I see my name at the top. An article I wrote about something I believe in, and then I realize that what I have to offer runs deeper than any superficial beauty. My brainpower is one of my greatest gifts, and using it to spread the word about our hunting community is a blessing.

Check out the latest Mule Deer Foundation magazine for my 2nd article from my 3 part series. I’m quite proud of it. And you’ll continue finding my name in that magazine in the future, as I’m doing my best to contribute to this wonderful organization and the conservation efforts of our beloved mule deer, black-tailed deer, and their habitat.

  1. I have to ask, how did you get to write for hunting/conservation magazines? I’m becoming increasingly interested in freelance for such journals.

    • Hi! I just now found your comment / question! Sorry for the delay! You should contact the editor of the publications that you are interested in, and offer your knowledge to their readers. Branch out, get creative, and go for it! If it’s something you’re interested in, then the sky’s your limit. My best advice is to get in touch with the editor, ask questions about what content they are looking for, and put your heart and soul into it! It’s always rewarding to see your words published!

      • Oh gosh you don’t need to apologize. You’re a busy entrepreneur! Thank you so much for the advice, every little bit goes a long way. And a big congratulations again for your big gig with Midwest Outdoors! That is so terribly exciting
