Actually, I don’t have any “secrets” of breaking into travel writing, as I am just starting out on this little endeavor. But don’t go away to quickly, as I do have a starting point, and that is something many aspiring writers lack.

And who knows, maybe I will discover some secrets as I go.

The first thing I am doing is getting some practice. I discovered, when planning my trip, how helpful TripAdvisor was for finding hotels, restaurants, and things to do. Therefore, I thought that this would be a great starting place to practice some simple travel review writing. It does not pay anything, but you do get feedback from other users of the site, and that is worth quite a bit to the novice writer.

Here is a link to my Trip Advisor profile if you want to see what I am writing: http://www.tripadvisor.com/members-reviews/ASchroader .

Check back again soon to see what other writing adventures I am about to embark on!
