A Long, Long Day

Well it's been a long day of resume posting, applying for jobs and trying to get this freelance career up and running. I am starting to get discouraged, but fear not! I will go forth in pursuit of my dreams regardless of adversity. At only 23, I feel like I am too young to land the jobs I want, but the squeeky wheel gets the grease, and I will squeek away. I have been reading blog after blog about becoming a freelance writer in an effort to pick the brains of some success stories. I think I am going to get some business cards made so I can promote my writing. I like business cards, they make me feel professional. I have had them before for a previous job and I got them for a fairly cheap cost, so Im hoping they will pay for themselves in time. I know that this job is all about networking and just sticking with it when the going gets tough, and right now the going is tough. My book is coming along fine and dandy though! Hope to hear from a publisher sometime soon. Basically I am just trying to make money any where I can and right now thats not a lot of places. I need to give myself a break, I am just starting this, and I don't really know what I'm doing. Sometimes I just wish there were 48 hours in a day, because WOW are my days FLYING! Well, it's back to my book I go right now, hope everyone is alright.

Help show some love to my suite articles!
Write well and write often
