Capt Jill Gets Published!

I got home from my weekly Campaign for Liberty meeting tonight to find an email informing me that a story I had written had been published in the Maritime Executive magazine. I am still so excited! πŸ™‚

This is the first time my writing has been published in a major magazine. I had been published in a couple of school newspapers and had written a couple of things for the Women’s Maritime Association.

The Maritime Executive used my story just like I wrote it. I expected them to edit the hell out of it since I’m not a professional writer (yet). They also used my photos for the story. πŸ™‚

I wrote about what it’s like to work offshore where you get to work by helicopter instead of by car. Check it out, here’s the link…

I would have liked to have put a photo in this post, but I just dropped my main computer off at the shop today (hoping to get bugs removed) and so I don’t have access to my photos. I hope they’ll have it fixed by the weekend.

Let me know what you think about my article. Did you like it? Want to know more? Want to know more about different aspects of working out there? What do you REALLY want to know about it??? πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks for the nice comment on my article. I’m glad you liked it. I am working on more. With so many other things going on around here, it’s hard to make the time to work on anything . I’ll get around to it eventually. πŸ™‚


  1. Congratulations, Jill! I love it when I see a writer get published for the first time. It’s especially exciting when it’s in a print publication, isn’t it – those you can frame and hang on the wall. Now it’s time to start archiving your “clip” credits. With one magazine article comes another and another.

    Way to go! 😊


    • Thanks so much Joseph! Yes, I was SO excited. I was even asked to come up with some other stories by the same editor. Too bad I just haven’t had the time to even think about it.
      Sorry I took so long to answer your comment. I wasn’t trying to ignore you, it just got buried in my email. 😦
