When it rains, it pours.  So not only am I currently writing a 25 page white paper through freelance work, I am also waiting on an audio file to write a transcription and just got hired to write for an athletic news website.  Wow, I'm not sure whether to cry with joy or at the thought that I'm gonna be typing my fingers to nubs.  Either way I'm ecstatic to be getting somewhere.  Since I've started documenting this journey, freelance jobs have been hit and miss.  It's nice when fortune changes.
The funniest part is that I've been off work all week after I developed pneumonia.  Good thing writing just involves brain power and lots of coffee!!!
Well lunch break is over.  Time to get back at it.

  It occurs to me that everyday I am gaining experience and honing my craft.  Every time I read, write or even "write" a passage aloud, I am slowly perfecting my skill.  Granted I have a long way to go still, but I never realized how much writing I do in the run of a day and how much I think about what to write or how to write it.  I've been doing it naturally for years that it is just second nature to me.
  It's a bit of an annoyance really.  Coming from a home that prided natural talent over anything else, I often struggled to find mine.  I've dabbled in everything at one point or another.  Although that approach left me with lots of "useless" knowledge.  Not saying I'm a Shakespeare.  Far from in fact, but I struggled to find my niche for years, only to have it slap me in the face unexpectedly.  And I have to say that it seems the most comfortable fit yet.  I say that while I'm writing in a blog, wearing pajamas, wrapped in an old blanket and seriously contemplating coffee.  I just can't wait till I can actually write for a living.
