A Writing Gig?

I wouldn't have thought it possible a year ago. Heck, I would have scoffed at the idea 3 months ago, but upon browsing the RPG.Net Freelancing Forum recently, I decided to answer a call for freelance writers, instead of illustrators.

I submitted the text for the Net.Guide to Spleens to the person in charge and hoped for the best. After a flurry of e-mails, I was tasked to write 2 articles for a book which will be released next spring. The tone of the short write-ups would be akin to that of the Twilight Zone or Twin Peaks, or like Grant Morrison's The Invisibles (A great comic. Go out and read it if you haven't.) The job isn't a earth-shattering one, nor does it pay much but it would be my first professional writing gig, and as they say my foot at the door.

The company I'm writing for is Abstract Nova, publisher of the Heaven and Earth RPG. Here's hoping I get more writing gigs.

This sounds like a nice project to begin a freelance writing career with Hish.
Remember though, the truth maybe out there, but the lies are all right here. :)
