The First

Ten copies of The Hancock News

Why in the world would ten copies of Wednesday's edition of our local paper, The Hancock News, be stacked on our table? The obvious answer is that my husband bought them. But why would he do such a thing? Because he was (perhaps overly) proud of his wife.

On Wednesday, my first "Spice of Life" newspaper column was published in our small weekly newspaper. The editor said that we should shoot for once or twice a month, depending on advertisements and such. It's not a paying job, but it does feel nice to have something published.


  1. Wow! My niece is a published writer!

  2. Yep. And if you want a copy, I just so happen to have about 7 available ones!

  3. Congratulations! Are you willing to post what you wrote for your first article on your blog or was it too local or too personal?

  4. Yes, Ewe, I am planning on posting each column a week or so after it is published.

  5. That's exiting. Great job! I'm sure many people enjoyed reading it

    1. Thanks for the confidence :) I'm not sure how many people enjoyed reading it, but I enjoyed writing it.
