Photography is a huge one for me.
But my other love is football. It has been since I sat next to my dad as a 4 year old and he explained why Notre Dame was going to win the game he was watching. I may have been the only girl in my 5th grade class who did a book report on the Johnny Unitas book I bought from scholastic book club!
Yes, I'm a football dork.
This week, in order to satisfy my inner dork, I submitted a writing sample of a football article to a sports website and much to my surprise was accepted as a staff writer.
No, it doesn't pay. No, I don't care.
Writing sports articles is just one more way to flex my writing muscle and the pay off is getting to write about a sport I love so well. Even better, I don't have to be an expert, I just have to have an opinion!
I'll be working on my secret dork handshake and decoder ring!
