Freelance Writing Jobs for July 11, 2011

Writer's Block

Writer's BlockHappy Monday morning, everyone! How did the weekend go?

If you’re looking for a book to read that is worth your time and money, may I suggest “Write More Good” from the guys of the Fake AP Stylebook? I have not had the chance to read it myself, but I am definitely going to look for a way to get my hands on a copy. If any one of you has read it, care to share your thoughts?

Have a great week ahead!

      Hi Carol,

      Thanks for your question. You got me thinking!

      “Any” can actually be singular or plural, depending on how it is used. In this case, the way I phrased the question was rather vague. It could be taken in two ways:

      1. If any one of you…
      2. If any of you people…

      Case 1 would be singular: If any one of you has read the book…
      Case 2 would be plural: If any of you people have read the book…

      In my sentence, I meant Case 1, but I should have been clearer and should have written it as such.

      I hope that clarifies things, and thank you again for raising the question.

    Hi Noemi, and all–
    The International is not offering paid jobs- just asking for volunteer labor. It’s potentially for SOMEONE, as the content seems to be focused on human rights/international dev., but just FYI, volunteer basis.

    Hi Noemi,

    I have been applying to jobs from this list, every day, for weeks.
    And nothing.
    I am a new freelance writer, but many of the jobs I applied for I feel like I would have been a perfect fit.
    What am I doing wrong? Is there some secret way to apply and actually get hired??

    Thanks so much for your reply.

      Stephanie- it’s that these listings get 100s of applications. Of those, it’s likely that 20 feel perfect for the job (the others are playing the numbers game). Of those 20, the client probably has the chance to read MAYBE 10 of those. To be one of those ten takes luck and replying EARLY (my top of the pile theory).

      In addition, it’s possible that you weren’t as perfect as you thought.

      Also, yes you’ve got the new thing working against you….

      Keep trying, but don’t rely solely on these listings. Network and volunteer.

      Hi Stephanie,

      I am sorry to hear that you haven’t been getting any jobs. It does take some patience and persistence. As Allena said, many of these listings get a lot of applications. Her advice is perfect – I hope that it helps you get some jobs in the future!

      Good luck!
