It is great to see my stories in print, because I fall in love with every one of them as I am writing. However, it's even more rewarding when the people who have trusted me to tell their stories are please with my work. When The Andovers came out, I received this email from Maria Dakopoulos, the bride who I profiled:
"Hi Kelly, I just wanted to thank you so much for the article! It was so adorable! We absolutely loved it and it was written so well!
It's an honor to be able to tell other people's stories. It's something I hope to be able to do forever (with a few of my own too, of course).
I have also begun a new writing gig for a media studio. I'll be writing shorter, informational articles that will appear on eHow, Global Post, and other websites. You can see links to all my work here.
