Well, along with working on my book, I decided to take up some freelance writing for helium. I did this for several reasons. I wanted to improve my writing skills, add my opinion to the vast amount of articles out there, and quite honestly earning a little cash from it doesn't hurt. Also it will help get the word out about my upcoming book. I have to admit I am new to the freelance writing business. But my love of creative writing overpowers my inexperince. I just need to control my obsession with writing a bit so I don't become ingnorant to the needs of my family and what is happening in my life as of now. It's hard not to get absorbed in writing when the passion is there. Everything else around here just seems to disapper and it is just you and your thoughts. Always looking for that healthy medium is a constant battle.
Has anyone else taken up freelance writing along with writing their book? It seems like I am taking on too much but with me being laid off from my job and the kids in school, I have some time on my hands now. I just need to spread my time across evenly. I hope by doing some freelance work it will help me with the writing and sales of my upcoming book.
I have looked extensivlely into at home, on-line jobs that I can do. Sadly, the vast majority are scams. I really wish they weren't. An at-home job is something I desperately need due to my MS. I have had so many flares this year. How am I suppose to attain a new job and keep it if the flares keep making me miss time from that new job? What job will tolerate that: Maybe once or twice but nothing more than that.
So I am hopes that this freelancing will head my hopes and dreams in the right direction.
