I’m in an ezine!
Some of you may know I also write about Formula One for a couple of websites and over the weekend one of my articles was published in the Grand Prix Plus ezine.
While I was at the Italian Grand Prix I organised an interview with one of the drivers physiotherapists and had a chat with him about fitness in F1.
After many hours of typing I sent it off to a journalist I met at the British Grand Prix and as a result it ended up in the Brazilian Grand Prix edition of Grand Prix Plus.
Unfortunately I can’t send you a link to the article because the magazine is subscription only but I can tell you I’m feeling pretty giddy about seeing my work in something that’s paid for.
I’ve written plenty of articles for websites but being in an paid ezine to me suggests much higher standards and is something I can begin building a portfolio with.
In terms of writing, this year has been unbelievable for me. If someone had told me when I first set up my F1 blog three years ago that I’d be writing for websites, going to races, interviewing drivers, watching a practice session from a team garage and having my work in a paid publication, I’d have called you crazy.
I’m very grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given and intend to make the best of them.
If there’s a moral to this story, or something that you can take away from it whatever your goal is, it’s this: don’t give up.
Yeah it’s cheesy and it’s been said a thousand times before but I’ve thought about quitting more times than I care to think about but there’s this little burning ‘what if’ inside me that keeps me going when I’m wondering why I’ve not really had a break over the weekend or when I think it’s too hard.
What keeps you going?
