I get to call myself a "Professional
Freelance Writer" since I have been lucky enough to sell a little of my
work for actual "real for sure money".
Most of my scratchings have been a number of freebie articles for the local newspaper (Circulation about 30,000). They generally deal with lifestyle issues except for the occasional political rant which I direct to the "letters to the editor" column.
I have a dream of someday having a weekly newspaper column self syndicated in several local papers. I have been writing columns ahead for future use just in case I get started and get writers block. I have enough material ahead for about 3 months now.
Then of course there is "the book". Doesn't everybody have a book... Mine currently consist of 1 page of book and 2,000 pages of disorganized notes.
Page under construction.
