I've been working at freelance writing for a while now. I've had one long term contract for a tiny amount of money, but it's been important to get my credibility built up.
I just finished my first big project from a different employer. I got it by bidding on it about a week ago.
Now, I have another contract that was just awarded, and I feel awesome. I can write!
I don't know how many of you understand the amazing feeling I have right now, but I've always wanted to write. Since I was a kid, I've loved writing. I haven't always been great at creative writing, but doing research, essays, papers, etc... I've excelled.
Now to get paid for what I love is, not to play on my name, Bliss!
I'm not sure how long it's been since I've felt secure in a professional capacity, but I do right now. I also don't know how long it's been since I've felt confident in myself. I've been through a lot over the past couple of years. This is just.... it's validation. It's proof to myself that I can do it.
Not easy work, but fulfilling and I'm loving it. Take hold of your dreams, dear readers. It can happen if you want it to.
I'm going to go bounce now.
