*hops on bandwagon to talk about this as someone who turned tweets into a career* Okay so first read all of this advice. Got it? Good. Now let's talk a sec about roads to success & how you don't have to follow what anyone else is doing.
I'm 41 years old. I have the kind of career path that makes career counselors sit down & take a drink. And stare at my resume & ask me quietly, plaintively if I ever bothered to think about long term goals or if I just spun the dial & leaped. (Door #2 is the answer mostly)
I've always been a writer. But writing doesn't pay the bills at first unless lightning strikes & I don't believe in starving. Also I have kids & a husbeast so you know...responsibilities. So I built the giant platform & then I started trying to publish. It works better that way
If someone offers you a paid opportunity? Great! Take it. Unpaid? Maybe not. Mostly not. But don't be afraid to apply. Don't let a no stop you either. I got a rejection for something yesterday & an acceptance for something else today. That's how this works.
I do have degrees from UIUC & DePaul. I got them as a working mom (single for the BA, married for the MA & yes that's a terrible pun waiting to happen) so you know...don't let that stop you either. Just saying.
