Okay, in the grand scheme of things it is probably not a big deal. In face to some of you it’s probably not any sort of excitement…. however, today, I finally, for the very first time, applied for a couple of writing jobs on odesk (as kindly referred to me by my new cat-crazy friend Tom ~ “Hi Tom”). Just some article-writing type jobs, but still, a big “eeeeeeeeek”! I feel a bit like Neil Armstrong might have felt when he landed on the moon, except heavier!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have any expectation of actually GETTING them, after all I am relatively new to all this and just starting out. But at the same time, I feel like by at least applying I am putting myself out there – that I want, no damn it – WILL – write for a living in the future. Hopefully just not a distant future!
I guess all it really takes is someone to give me a break. What’s the saying, “don’t be shy, give ME a try”!
Now I just need to keep expanding my portfolio of work, but first – another cuppa!
