A New Writing Venture: MCV Magazine


Earlier this summer, I shared my ambition to be a travel writer and some pieces I wrote for a travel website that later froze and vaporized for unknown reasons.  That was disappointing but another opportunity has come my way.  While in New York we stopped by MECCA Center in mid-town Manhattan and met two lovely sisters from Brooklyn.  As I struck up a conversation with one of them, I shared this blog with her and referred to myself as an “aspiring travel writer”.  Her reply?  “You are a travel writer” and I’m starting to believe her.  She later invited me to write a healthy eating/travel column for her clothing company’s online magazine, MCV Magazine.  Adding this to my repertoire, I’ve had to revisit my intentions for all the time and thought I spend writing and concluded that whether I’m paid or not, read or ignored, my intent is to keep writing what I see with a hope that someone will encounter new places through my prose and realize that we are all, in way or another, traversing a common journey.  More writing to come, insha’Allah (God willing).
