The biggest one for me?
Get a regular, paying writing gig.
Freelance writing is hard because it’s all over the place. You feel like you’re constantly chasing down jobs, and then when you are able to land one, it’s a waiting game to actually see any mula from it. So I really, really wanted some kind of steady writing job that would help me feel a little more centered in working as a writer.
And I got it!
It’s not a lot of money, but it will definitely help me pay the grocery every month. And I’m so excited to be writing about one of my favorite subjects–pregnancy! (I’m an expert, after all, right?) I’ll now be writing for Everyday Family three times a week on pregnancy-related topics. Which reminds me–if you have anything you’d like to see me write about, shoot me a message or leave a comment below! I’m already getting some ideas from friends, so I love the idea that I could help with any questions you might have.
I’m a big believer in writing down your goals, visualizing them, and then working hard to make them happen. It’s that whole power of positive thinking thing; and while of course, there are limitations, (even the best of positive thoughts can’t prevent tragedies, for instance) I think it’s awesome to set a clear goal, think positively about it, and see it happen.
Now if only I could do that for the last of the baby weight…
But without further adieu, my first post over at Everyday Family:
