This last post in the series took me a bit longer to compose than usual.
I wasn’t quite sure which words to pick and place them in all the right places, and it took a few re-writes.
Sometimes I just need to actually write.
Then again, I wasn’t aiming for perfection. Instead, I wanted to give one last recap of what has been going on and give a sense of why I started this project.
A small recap
Losing a job, going through a mini rough stretch and having to take action wasn’t an easy process. In a sense, there are a few uncertainties and some kinks to still work out.
But it’s all worth it. And I have no regrets of the past and moving forward.
Sometimes these bumps in the road of life is what a person needs to get to a better place. My freelance writing journey will take a few turns and meet a few road blocks – perhaps even take a few sidesteps.
But I feel confident that I can take any challenge head on and turn them into opportunities.
Working for myself full time is not going to be easy, but in my opinion will offer me the most rewarding future.
Its the beginning of February and it appears that I am ready to take on the world of freelance writing. Yet, I know that there is so much more out there available to me.
Luckily, I have chosen a path many are taking. There are many websites and blogs already that have wonderful resources for writers. Not to mention social media and some existing friends who are behind support me.
I can already see that many new writers are looking for support, so that was one of the areas of interest. This blog will serve that purpose, albiet with a few major differences.
I have come to the conclusion early in the new year that this website needed to be different.
Something fresh, different, a new perspective and place for ideas. A blog that others and myself could enjoy doing – not just another place to “get clients”.
Trust me, there are many websites out there that say “do this, or do that”, “how to make money”, “look at me”, and so on.
This blog is not going to follow any of those templates.
Which leaves me the great opportunity to experiment and take chances. There are already a few ideas I have, and have begun to make a few drafts.
I would like to offer other new writers ideas on how to be different or at least create their own voice. Because I believe that trying to “fit in” with what other writers are doing is not worthwhile.
Thanks for reading my three part series, I wanted to create these three posts as a way to introduce the blog. Going forward there will be some changes as I experiment with a few things.
The website itself will always have the same goal – a place for potential writers starting out and to get new ideas.
So come take a journey with me, lets go down this path together!
