So what's a freelance writer to do?
Start a blog, apparently.
It's either that, or file. And I hate to file, so . . . well, here I am. . . .
Yes, I can, and will, work on my own projects over the Christmas and New Year holidays. But it's also a good time to try something new . . . to experiment.
And this is an experiment. Because I'm not really sure just yet what form this blog will take. Unlike a blog I might do for a client, there isn't a single audience I'm targeting and writing for. If this were a client's blog, it would be simpler, because most of the time (with few exceptions) a client is a business, often a one-man-band or Ma-'n-Pa kind of small business, though occasionally larger. I write about a product or service, and the target audience is the business' clientele.
But here I suppose I might have two distinct audiences: perhaps some of my clients or prospective clients will be reading, but some of my readers might be other writers as well.
Which would be excellent.
So, while I can give clients or future clients some insight into how writers--or at least how I--work, and answer any questions they might have, it would also be very cool to hear from other writers--freelance or otherwise.
Either way, feel free to post a reply, comment, or question. I'll do my best to respond.
