A way to get published sooner
January 25, 2007 7:52am CST
My career as a professional writer began when one of my articles was accepted and published by a magazine for teachers. Seeing my name in print at last motivated me to continue writing. It took time and a lot of work, but ultimately I had 30 articles and one book published. I think that a good way for new writers to "get their foot in the door" is by writing an article on a topic of interest to them. For example, what problem(s) can you help your colleagues or coworkers solve? How have you solved that problem? Can others duplicate your efforts with similar results? You should also consider writing an article about your hobby or interest. If you're interested in cycling, for example, you will find an interested audience. You will also find at least one magazine that is devoted to cycling. How do you find article ideas? Read the magazines and/or journals that are related to your interests and/or work. What articles would you still like to see in print in those magazines, but haven't so far? What niche hasn't been filled so far? Remember, editors like writers who know what they are talking about and appreciate authoritative articles. So the least you can do is to try. You may get something published right away! Good luck in your efforts.

I write primarily to serve God and help people understand the Word of God. I am a Christian, a child of God, baptized into Christ on October 1, 1989 and I belong to the Church of Christ founded and headed by Christ as shown in Acts Chapter 2. I am given the gift of knowledge and understanding Bible Greek and I translate the Word of God from Greek to English PLAINLY - Greek word into its English equivalent with additional words for grammar purposes written in italics so that readers may delete them when they so desire. I have already published GENESIS, EXODUS, LEVITICUS (Greek-English), THE WILL New Testament (Greek to English), ELEMENTS of SALVATION, The Right Way, GOD, ORIGIN, TRANSFER into PERFECTION, GREEK-ENGLISH (Grammar & Vocabulary), WORDS in THE WILL New Testament, and others shown at http://www.lulu.com/arseniajoaquin I have seen the versions being circulated worldwide and they are generally admitted to be 80% NOT translations. My translations are 99.99% translations and I see the truth, beauty, and sweetness of the Word of God. I hope these books could also help people understand the Word of God and be saved. Some copies are sold and I hope that more will be sold when the books are placed on the Global Distribution Service. I expect a lot of money to come from the books so I donated THE WILL New Testament (Greek to English) to the Alpha Omega Seniars Intl Foundation, Inc. for senior citizens, widows, orphans, disabled, poor intellectuals, etc. I'm also donating at least 20% of the proceeds from other books that I publish. As soon as I finish GENESIS TO DEUTERONOMY (Greek-English), I intend to donate it to the Church.
