Two weeks ago, I submitted an article that I’d written to a first-time client. Later this week, I’ll be submitting a sidebar for that project to wrap it up. I also submitted a major article plus sidebars to another new client this past Friday. In just a couple of days, after I finish that first sidebar, I will have checked two major projects off my to-do list. W00t! Even better, I checked off two projects that I’m really pretty proud of.
I do still have some ongoing work for regular clients, and of course, I plan to be proud of that work, too. But I think I may actually be ready to sit down and do some brainstorming for some new story ideas that I can pitch to other magazines and websites. I genuinely haven’t had time to do that in awhile, so I am looking forward to doing it again. And more importantly, I need to do that again. After all, I never would have landed those aforementioned two big projects if I hadn’t done it to begin with!
