Roy: you should write for ***publication***
they are really one of the top level outlets for general audience/enthusiast tech reporting and they are looking for columnists ***link***
Meg: Oh, nice!
Roy: i’m sure you have a solid application package on hand to send them
Meg: well… I have some good clips
but I hate writing up cover letters
Meg: No, seriously, if I could just send my clips with a “click here if interested” button, I’d be so happy
Roy: you should have a couple of standard cover letters on file that you can customize quickly
Meg: I have a skeleton one that I tailor for each application, but I am so uncomfortable telling people why I’m awesome
well you better practice!
Meg: I really don’t know what to say besides that other people hired me
and they thought I was pretty good
so maybe you should too
you know, if you want to
Roy: you might want to reconsider that part
