My first Australian publishing credit (uncredited)

My work-mate Russell and I wrote a headline and sent it to The Shovel, which is Australia's version of The Daily Show if TDS were a web magazine.

Tony Abbott “Sick And Tired” Of Being Held To First World Standards

The Shovel 

To really get the joke you have to have seen the news article where Abott complained about being lectured to by the UN on human rights treatment of refugees.

This writing gig was unpaid and uncredited (which seems fair for 12 words) but who knows? It could lead to bigger things. Why if I play my cards right I could impress a big-shot literary agent and get the attention of a few publishers!
