I just finished my first freelance project. It was for 30 travel-related articles on various cities/towns around the world. It was interesting to learn about all the different places I was assigned, and a little dull at times writing such format-driven articles, but overall it was a good experience. It was my first real assignment, so I was looking at it more as a learning experience than anything else. They did pay me, but not much.
I did learn that the amount of time it takes me to research and write an article is longer than I thought it would be, but mostly it was the research that took all the time. I liked the writing part, but didn’t enjoy the research as much.
Up next: More book reviews, editing my book and trying to write some new short fiction and/or poetry.
Keep your eyes peeled!
