Sort of a hit

The article for the local papers that I tweaked the other day was in at least two papers that are part of the group so that's almost a hit - isn't it. Better than that though, it has resulted in two phone calls from the public about it which makes it a hit for the day job. Yay!

I would say that it definitely counts, whether you get paid or not. So well done.

Great news, well done.

Thanks Captain and Suzanne.
I didn't get paid for what I wrote but I always knew that was going to be the case and getting a response was payment enough. What was better though was someone who didn't know that it was my handiwork telling me yesterday that they had seen it in the paper and thought that it was "great - short but said everything that it needed to say."

I agree Colette - it's a hit, well done! Any piece of writing published, paid or unpaid, is a hit - and needs to be saved, as part of your 'portfolio'.(I even kept my silly letter to the Daily Mail about I-Spy books!). It all counts. Good for you - especially as it's helped you in the day job too. Double hit!

Definately a double hit Olivia. I was so chuffed.
