Because I am a work at home mom, my freelance writing career might not be as vibrant as others’. My time for networking, seeking new clients and hanging out at local events where there might be needy editors and publishers is very much limited.
Still, every now and then I get to work for a new client, and sometimes, it’s even a really good one. This week I did a project for a client who is not only reasonable and trustworthy, but local and nice to talk to.
Even better, he offered me the sort of work that I truly enjoy – a sizable, thoughtful document that needed editing. Jobs like this involve organization, writing, rewriting and thinking on both detailed and big picture levels. Gigs of this type remind just how much of a textuality nerd I am.
