Persistence Pays Off

You hear veteran writers tell you the same thing a lot of times, “Keep trying.”

Well, they say that for a reason: because it WORKS! I have been submitting pitches for freelance work for about three weeks now, carefully making sure I followed the advice I was given and not letting the silence on the other end discourage me.

And I now have two contracts for three articles under my belt as a result of my continuing work! It feels awesome!

So, yes – KEEP TRYING!

I speak the thoughts rattling around in my brain, sharing topics I think other people want and should hear (or are afraid to talk about themselves). I bring my personality and quirky state of mind to everything I write; serious topics shouldn't be devoid of humor. That includes my blog and freelance work (part of my charm). I've been writing for as long as I can remember. It's a source of solace and enjoyment for me. I'm lucky enough to call what I love my career - so it's NOT work! I live in Virginia with the Minions (four cats and a Greyhound) and my wonderful husband, who ensures I stay fed - no cereal for dinner - and as close to sane as I can get.
