There’s nothing quite like having your behind handed to you. There I was, building up my freelancing experience when I submitted a big project only to be met with, “We’re going to just do it ourselves.” Ouch. Cue my ego crying in the shower. I turned my back on writing for quite a while. I even abandoned my friends’ website temporarily while I got my act together. Luckily, he’s very understanding and I’ll be happily writing away for them again once the server goes back up.
Now, I feel like I’m ready to take another crack at it. I had to step away for a while and focus on something else. Unfortunately that “something else” turned out to be an ultra addictive app called “Vine”. But I digress. I’ve been scouring the ads for work and my best shot right now seems to be in transcription. I’m very gifted at mindless work! And happy to do it!
Don’t be afraid to take a break if you feel like you’re not putting your best work out. Sometimes life gets in the way and there’s nothing wrong with taking a breath of fresh air every now and again. It’s never good to huddle down, nose in the computer screen for too long, after all…there is a whole real world happening out there.
