“Writer’s Advice” Final Entry 2013

The type and amount of writer’s advice I feel qualified to give is greater than nonexistent but limited.  I believe I wrote about some types of professional writers for one or two posts.  Even so, there are still more. 

There are corporate writers, and there are freelancers and there people we may think of as book writers or novelists or as academics who get something published. 

So called freelancing is not always the way it seems.  There are times when it is a lead in to getting a real job as a staff writer for a magazine or a newspaper.  Most of us remember the amazing freelance journalist who was offered a job by NBC after some of his investigative journalism in the Middle East made prime time news shows a few years ago.  People were impressed by his work and sort of flustered and dumbfounded that he was a freelancer. 

Many have heard of Peter Parker in the Spider Man story when a middle aged newspaper man tells a young man to freelance because he is too immature and inexperienced to be granted an actual job at the newspaper.  Then, only thanks to being a super hero in disguise, is the young man able to regularly freelance for the newspaper.  That’s how difficult it can be to get anywhere freelancing.  Good luck with it: that was even though the editor was willing to give him the time of day.

There are people who write well and somehow meet the right editorial staff somewhere.  This can happen simply by submitting a good piece of work and then not messing up the relationship with the editorial staff.  Events of that nature sometimes lead to long term and repeat business.

When that happens often enough at good enough rates of pay, a freelancer can actually be a person who runs his or her (their) own little writing business. 

What % of writers does that happen to?  I honestly don’t know. 

Disjointed Information – maybe poetry 2013

Awareness involves whatever is going on around oneself.

A dog invited me to go outside with her.  This time I did.  At least 4 birds moved twice because of what we did out there.  The dog may have asked me to take her out for a walk but I don’t have enough of the instructions from those closer with the animal to be ready to do something like that but I am not strongly against the idea. 

I feel I should go out today.

Last night there was such a drama that I thought this laptop had died, which would have made it difficult or impossible to send this message this way today.  I might have managed it from the nearest library.

Today, I wanted to sell more copies of my books.  I have some on hand and was going to try to do so in person. 

It is early enough in the day and late enough that I should still do it even though I cannot do it the way I had intended at 9am this morning.

I like it better when self-employment actually works and I really earn money than when I work and it doesn’t pay off which makes it feel more like being a student or a slave or indentured servant. 

When I was a school girl I diligently did my work even though they did not pay me.  As a grown woman in the work world I sometimes wonder if that was the right thing to do or was actually a mistake because i should work more when people pay me given that I am not living in a Communist society.

I realize that if everyone was financially equal regardless I would probably feel more successful today than when I feel that no matter what I do, the expectation in general is that if it works properly I will be financially much wealthier and if it doesn’t pay well then there is a problem.  I do not agree that money is always the best judged but I had wanted to do well financially.  It does get weird.
