Freedom From The Mundane - A Writer's Blog

Tuesday, September 19, 2006


Couldn't sleep last night. I hate that.

Tonight was spent preparing a plan for contracting out my writing as a freelancer. I researched markets, scoured the listings and markets, prepared query and email templates, and applied for 7 gigs.

I should have been this organised months ago. It's all about confidence in my ability. I KNOW I can research and I KNOW I can apply myself to a wide range of things. Looking at my literary CV confirms this. It's when I get to the point of, "Do I actually have this in me?" that I start to waver.

Tonight, instead of pressing the wee 'x' in the typed email and forgetting it, I clicked on 'send'.

Fingers crossed.

No fiction done, except a read-through and edit of Water of Leith. Not sure where this would be suitable for quite yet. Something Scottish but I'll keep looking.

It's cold tonight and I'm tired.
