I'm about to be a published author, kind of.
So, about a year an a half ago I wrote an article for a comedy website called cracked.com. I just found out today that they are making a cracked.com book and my article was chosen to be in it. Here is the article as it appeared on the site: http://www.cracked.com/article_16508_6-terrifying-things-they-dont-tell-... FYI, any other aspiring writers (especially those who are into writing comedy) should check out cracked. Its a great way to get some exposure and they pay their contributors.
