For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a writer. Right now I am doing marketing and ghostwriting for clients and I enjoy it. But at the end of the day, when I finish writing the story for my client, someone else’s name goes on that book. And it is okay because I am learning so much. But I am so thrilled to tell you that I have my first byline with my name on it…which brings me to my first article published at HelloGiggles.
I had an idea about a month ago for an article that talked about how dating during an election–specifically this election–was a pain. My friend and fellow writer, MK, insisted that I “pitch” the idea to publications. But I put it off. It was a combination of being afraid of rejection and just not wanting to write anything about this election. But then MK forced my hand. Thank goodness she did because HelloGiggles picked it up.
Listen, I would love it if you read it. If you are on election coverage overboard, don’t worry. That’s not the thrust of the piece. Because in the time I took putting it off, my feelings of dating during an election actually changed. This is not a piece about the election or anyone’s politics. It’s how I learned a great deal about dating and myself through the recent political happenings. It’s meant to be lighthearted.
Here’s the piece:
But will you do me a favor and read it: Why dating during an election will teach you a lot about yourself — and the person you’re seeing?
