I’ll take it.

After a few months trying to find repeat business from a client I managed to land one that has given me several assignments and a little momentum. I’ve tested for a few but haven’t been the right fit for one reason or another. (My favorite was a client who said I write like an author, but essentially the content needed to be dumbed down. Part compliment, part constructive criticism.)

I’m writing about things that I don’t always have a lot to say about but I can at least compel people to action and potentially guide them to where the article intends to. As with so much work in the freelance writing game, it is all about directing people to places to spend their money. I have a decent handle on how to make that happen but it does still feel a little strange to be doing it.

To be clear, the work I am being assigned will not make me rich. If I get bogged down too long on any given piece, the effective hourly rate plummets, but it allows me to do what I love and get paid for it. This makes the work better than any job I’ve ever had.

I’ve never experienced this kind of win-streak and I’m trying to line up opportunities to fill my entire calendar. The work makes me feel good and I think I’m good at it. It is worth trying, I genuinely have nothing standing in my way.
