I have learned a few things:
1. It’s best to troll major metro craigslist for new writing gigs (NY, Chicago, LA).
2. Sometimes, being the master of one’s own schedule is dangerous.
3. Working from home opens the door to working all the time, which is a filthy habit to which I am prone.
4. It is no easier to make time for blogging than it was before I was a full time freelancer.
5. WordPress blog is superior to Blogger. (Sorry, Google. I do love you).
6. People lie about wanting you to do work for them.
7. LinkedIn is a terrific resource.
I am about 5000 words along in my novel. I’ve stalled working on it, since I have been busy with paid work, but knowing that I get to work on it once I finish my paid work is enough to keep me going.
Some colleagues and I are starting a company to help romance writers polish their drafts. It will be called Revisioning Romances. I’ll link you once it’s up.
There are approximately 300 things I should be doing right now, some of these are laundry.
