Birth of ‘the baby’


Ahhhh.

That’s the sound of relief from the ‘birthing’ my new ebook, “YOU Can Become a Freelance Writer in 60 Days,” which was loaded onto Smashwords’ website just yesterday.

It was a grueling task but, like any birth, well worth it.

I’m thrilled with my ebook! I know there are several other books and ebooks on the topic but none of them have my particular story, my wit, my past – and that makes mine unique. It’s one of the things I talk about in the ebook: We all have our own story to tell, our own way of telling it – so in essence that qualified us to become writers in our own right.

I’ve had people ask me how I did it, how I broke through and became a writer (as if it’s some magic bullet). And I tell them the same thing I’m going to tell you: I made up my mind to write. I don’t mean to minimize it, but that’s pretty much how it began.

Sure, there are other things I had to implement: a structured plan, tenacity, determination¬† and (I think this is the most important part) humility to realize that I didn’t have all the answers (or none at all quite frankly).

To put it simply: it took some doing..but not much more of ‘a doing’ than working for someone else and making their dreams and goals a reality.

So there you have it: how I became a freelance writer – and it took FAR longer than 60 days – and that’s why I was determined to write this ebook…so that others (like you) can dodge the missteps that I took and propel to writing success much quicker than it took me.

If you’d like a glimpse of what my ebook has to offer, just download it here and read how YOU Can Become a Freelance Writer in 60 Days and start making your life over.

I did…and it was well worth it.

All the best,

Floating on air…


Just gotta share:

I recently picked up two really good clients Рboth of  which could lead to whole new fields of opportunities for me.

EXCITING TIMES FOR SURE!

The first client is in the fashion industry. Now I’m no fashion plate – but I’m not too old to learn (darn it!). Anyway, I’m simply delighted. I was getting desperate – and had in fact thrown my name into a “whatever comes along” jar to get a gig. (Hey, any work these days is better than none.)

But here’s what’s really weird about this:¬† I tried several times to break into the fashion industry…they simply weren’t having it. This last time I finally decided to just go hard and (in the vernacular), lay my thang down! But here’s the thing: the precise point I wanted to “Wow!” them with is precisely what didn’t – and the thing I thought was “ho-hum” was the thing that “Wowed!” them. Go figure.

The second client found me through a social network, one on which I rarely post. It’s quite an undertaking, but I’m eager to get things rolling and lick this puppy.

So yeah, you could say I’m floating on air these days, which is a good thing…

…since I’m also suddenly exhausted.
