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 – both 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.
