Now, feast, not famine.

February 20th, 2012 at 01:26 pm

In the world of freelance work, I've found it's feast or famine: either your phone is ringing off the hook with assignments, or it's a desert and it's like you dropped off the face of the earth. Right now, I'm having a feast.

I'm working on my second in-a-row high-paying story for a news wire service. Both were stories where editors called me to ask if I wanted the work. A very nice change. This place usually is a you come up with an idea, pitch it, and wait forever to hear if they want it or not. I guess I ended up on someone's good list.

And, I just got an email today from a friend's editor. He works on a higher-paying B2B magazine and was looking for a reliable freelancer. We talk tomorrow. We'll see how that goes. I am feeling overwhelmed a bit now, just trying to get ahead before I go to New Orleans in a couple of weeks, but with freelance, you just can't say no when opportunity arises. So, here's to getting everything done by deadline!
