Man, the past few days have been really really encouraging, freelance-wise. First there was the unexpected rush editing job I did yesterday that I think turned out well.
Then, I managed to nab a completely new freelance writing client this afternoon! When I responded to the client’s call for writers to write profiles about independent businesses in Toronto, they initially turned me down saying that they had enough writers show interest, but also saying they might want to get back in touch with me in a few weeks.
In response, I said that I’d love to hear from them again, and that when they do contact me, I’d be willing to write stories about the suburb that I live in, Scarborough, which doesn’t get much love in the press.
The client’s response? Something along the lines of “Well, if you WANT to write about SCARBOROUGH instead of downtown, then we’ll hire you ASAP.”
So, yeah. That happened.
After that, I completely reorganized the bookshelves in my office to make my main reference materials (style guides, dictionaries, grammar textbooks) easier to reach, and also to clear away clutter.
Now I’m suffused with the satisfied glow of a hard day’s work.
Um, yeah, the tea. Hmm..
This is nice and fruity/floral, but I have to admit that it doesn’t taste as sweet as it smells. It’s nicel, but mostly I’m going for it because it’s decaf and because it’s an easy sipdown.
So, um, yeah. That was my day today.
Thanks very much to Sil for sending me a sample of this.
