Travel Writer
Best job in the world...

Could you do it?

Here are five simple rules to help you get there

1-Keep a diary
Make copious notes wherever you go
Record your own impressions and observations
Talk to people, check facts

2- Take pictures
Look for variety and take as many shots as you can
No need for sophisticated equipment
Photoshop works wonders

3-Ideas
Less is more
The tighter the focus, the better
Multiple angles mean multiple sales

4-Study the market
Find the most suitable publications for your ideas
What are the requirements?
What do the readers want?
Write for them, not for you

5-Pitch before you write
That's what professionals do
Show the editor you understand the publication
Offer words and pictures
