That didn't happen. I felt lost without the structure of a newsroom and assignments coming down from on high. How was I even supposed to figure out what editor to pitch at any given magazine, much less figure out what kind of articles they were looking for? How could I prove my writing ability if I didn't have freelancing experience or clips? And once I did get my first assignment, how should I file my story? How do I get paid? And how do I pay taxes?
I fumbled my way into answers to these questions, but now I'd love to share what I've learned (plus my unhinged physical copy-and-paste method for drafting thorny stories, pictured here).
