I am talking about how to write fillers again today because that it was I have been doing in between writing children’s books and short stories. Here is my tips about writing about personal experience.
Tip 4: Write about personal experience from an article
What I mean about this is if you have read an article about something eg a health article on anxiety, and you have tried something that was suggested in the article, why not write to the magazine about your experience and what happened. I have done this. In Top Sante magazine recently, there was an article about 12 ways to calm anxiety. I thought I would try one of them and see what happens as I have been suffering anxiety when out shopping. I tried it on the bus to the local shops and it sort of worked. So, I wrote to the magazine about this. What happened? I got a personal email from the editor. Usually when that happens, my letter doesn’t appear, but the editor asked at the end, could she use my letter in the magazine? I replied, of course. So, success. I now wait for the next issue, out end of this month, to see if my letter is in it. It isn’t in the current one.
Find a magazine that interests you, read an article that suggests ways to help you in some way, try it and write to the magazine
Good luck. Let me know how you get on with this and if you have success.
