These are the tips, the golden rules, that i got from attending a writing seminar four years ago. I think it’s a timeless rule that every writer should consider whenever they are writing.
Today, I got an invitation from a parenting magazine asking me to come over tomorrow for an interview for the editorial assistant (EA) position. I confirmed immediately. After several minutes, the person replied, asking me to write 2 articles related to their magazine in approximately 400 words. Right then and there, I immediately had some problems on what topics to write and the difficulty of really executing the task given to me.
Actually, I haven’t bought or read any parenting magazine yet so I really have no clue. I started googling about some topics but I feel like I might just plagiarize the contents because I don’t have an expert source to quote and that would be a violation because plagiarism is a big no-no. So that leaves me to nothing.
I think I’m getting really desperate on having a job to the point of taking anything relevant to my course. I’m feeling lonely getting left behind while most of my batchmates are busy working their ass out. I think, I can’t have this parenting magazine EA position. It just doesn’t feel right and I know that I’ll be just wasting my time if I bother. I believe I need to be experienced and have some background knowledge about something before diving in. Yeah. I think I’m gonna follow my instincts.
