But it is history-related!
My first paying article is coming out this month! Check out Faces online or in the kids’ section of your local library. It’s a magazine that teaches kids in grades 4 through 8 about world cultures. September’s issue is about the Netherlands and I wrote an article about the Dutch resistance movement during WWII. Mentioned in this article are such figures as Anne Frank, Miep Gies, and Corrie Ten Boom, along with a group of five children who thought of some really creative ways to destroy Nazi morale.
Did I mention they paid me for this article? As in, I have a check in the mail? It won’t make our mortgage payment this month (or even pay the electric bill), but it is money for writing about something I love. How cool is that?
