Things to Come


As you can see, I didn’t get a chance to write anything yesterday like I had hoped to. I wasn’t feeling well at all, and I’m still not today. I’m not sure if I have the flu or if it’s my allergies. Either way, I wanted to provide you with some more info on things to come and changes that I’ve recently made in regards to my writing.

As some of you know, I was writing for Examiner.com and was quite successful at it. I was all set to become a National Examiner, but due to a holdup with my background check, I couldn’t.

I found out in November, I believe it was, that my background check never came back. (My info. was submitted in March 2009.) I continually over the subsequent months only to be told my background check was still in limbo. Since I didn’t want to write on a local level anymore due to the changes that were recently made, I decided that it would be best to close my account. It wasn’t an easy decision because I genuinely enjoyed writing for Examiner, but it just wasn’t working out the way I had hoped it would.

So where does that leave me? Well, I have freelance writing positions at Demand Studios and Break Studios. I also ghostwrite for a private client and publish revenue share articles on my own at eHow and Helium. In addition, I write a lot of safety and health-related documents for Take 2 Dough Productions in Sanford, Maine.

While it may seem like my plate is full, I am looking for other writing opportunities that allow me to be creative and express my thoughts. There are topics that I love to write about, like television shows, celebrities, etc., that I would love to write about on a professional level. So I’m going to keep my eyes and ears open and maybe, just maybe, I’ll find a new opportunity.

In the near future, I’d like to start posting interviews with fellow freelance writers and authors who have made it in the writing industry despite all the odds against them. I’d also like to start posting some of my original pieces for all of you to read.

Well, that’s it for today’s update. Have a great remainder to your weekend.
