This is an amazing time for freelance writers. Opportunities abound! That’s the good news. The bad news (if you are a glass-half-empty kind of person) is that when an opportunity is seized one must do work before the rewards of the opportunity can be obtained.
Say for instance an opportunity has presented itself in the form of creating a newsletter for a local company. That is wonderful but there is much work involved before the final product is complete. Research, meetings, interviews, writing, formatting . . . the work list goes on. Don’t be afraid of the overalls (the work involved). Simply adjust the straps, lace up the boots and get dirty.
Don’t miss the opportunity because it looks like work. Instead, work the opportunity until it looks like an achievement.
