After all these years, and after doing many things other than what I really should have done as a career, I am starting a legitimate job as a writer. I sort of can't even believe it!
About two months ago a local writer posted on Facebook that she was looking for free lance writers to help with a new venture and I immediately wrote to her to say I was interested. She knew me and my blog and immediately said yes, she'd like to have me contribute to her project. So as of right now I can call myself a legitimate writer as I'm contributing to the new East Hampton Patch, which just debuted. Patch is a "home page" for your computer, very personalized to the local community. On this site you'll be able to see late-breaking news, local weather, community calendars, learn about great things to do here on your free time, and find opportunities for volunteer work or a place to worship. In short, it will be a one-stop shopping spot for all things "East Hampton" and I'm very excited about it.
Once a week I'll be contributing an opinion column and I hope my blog readers will put "Patch" as their home page and check it out!
