As a freelance writer, one of the biggest challenges you face is setting yourself apart from everyone else.

I’m not celebrity-obsessed. I’m barely celebrity-interested. As such, excuse me if this rundown of recent events lacks the feel of a well-written gossip column. There is a television show called America’s Got Talent, which is a US-based knock-off of a show called Britain’s Got Talent. Former Britain’s Got Talent runner-up, Susan Boyle, was supposed to […]

I guess I’m extending an invitation with this post. It’s an invitation to operate on a more sincere level than others might sometimes use.

Sorry for going off topic. There must be a blog post somewhere about my affiliation with Demand Studios again, because I received another flood of emails about being a “Paid Mouthpiece”. Though it’s being suggested that I’m not being honest about my affiliation with Demand, I’d like to once again respond openly and honestly about […]
Summer is the best time for freelance writing. Freelance writers can work anywhere there’s WiFi and even plenty of places there aren’t.
