It's been a crazy busy week.  I worked like mad to finish the transcription job I had.  Got it done in 2 days, but I learned an important lesson.  Transcription takes alot longer than I initially thought.  I thought, oh only a 40 min recording, that'll only take me a couple of hours.  Nah uh!!!!  Like I said 2 days.  It took awhile just to get used to the voice I was listening to and how he pronounced words.  But it's done and another type of writing under my belt.
The 25 page report that I'm also working on for a client is taking forever.  I'm enjoying it, but I'm finding it harder and harder to keep motivated.  This is a good test of my writing endurance.  And it's also testing my ability to write at a university level.
I am getting many different styles to work on.  I really want to get a contract to write a press release, but without ever having done one before, most are hesitant to award a contract to a first timer.  But that will come in time.
I have a friend who asked for my help with his independent publishing business.  He needs an editor.  I'd basically be working for free till he can generate some income, but it'll give me a world of experience.  I'm thrilled about that opportunity.  I'll still stick with my freelance, because it brings me tons of happiness and fulfillment, but something that has a prospect of being a full time job at something I love doing, well makes me bounce with excitement.
Well I better get back to work.  Have a great weekend everyone.
