Looking back, I wish I had written every article differently. Some of the articles that I wrote were mediocre and I wish I had put in more effort. But I did learn from my mistakes; proof reading, correcting grammatical errors and looking into punctuations are the few things that I look into whenever I write now. While writing I learnt the importance of connectivity. The article should have some connectivity and there should be a flow which most of my articles lacked. That is one of the many things that I would like to redo. When I was interviewing a family member for an article I forgot to record it, so I had call back and ask them to repeat their answers again. That was embarrassing and it wasted a lot of their time. That incident taught me to be prepared beforehand. The number of errors that I made surely outweighs the things I did right and that is one thing I wish I could do differently.
Overall the experience has been wonderful. I got a glimpse into the world of magazines and writing. Working for Parent Edge is an excellent opportunity for budding writers to kick-start their writing career. Don’t forget to have fun! And imagine how good it would look on your college resume. So it has been an incredible journey. Thank you Parent Edge.
