Yes, it’s true writing novels and short stories doesn’t exactly pay the bills. Especially if you’re like me and your story has to be just right before sharing it with the world.
And, while I know nothing is perfect, I still find myself aiming for that perfection, you know?
So, about two years ago, I entered the world of freelance and it hasn’t been easy. In fact, the hardest thing has been getting clients. You see I struggle to sell myself and hate imposing on people, so sharing my services is not an easy thing to do.
Isn’t it wonderful being an introvert? I don’t like that I am an introvert but I can’t seem to break out of that either.
You’re probably wondering why I’m posting, right? Well, I’ve had a bit of a bad experience. I wrote some articles for a client in various niches and haven’t gotten paid. Hazards of the job, I know but now they are beginning to be unresponsive, which makes me believe I’ve been scammed. As the articles are all my own words but not relevant to this blog, I’m now considering what to do with them.
I’ll definitely keep you posted about my adventures with freelancing. I really should stick to editing and the odd graphic design job.
Speaking of, I’m currently working on a few maps of the towns that feature in my novels in The Eldritch Series. If anyone is interested in seeing their own characters world come to life, let me know in the comments.
