What’s New in My Freelance Writing World?

If you’ve been looking for a new blog post for the last six weeks and haven’t found one here, it’s probably because I’ve been busy. Busy writing articles; contracting with new clients; training in writers to subcontract by overflow to. Yeah. Kinda busy.

My first print magazine article, “Perfectly Aged, Freshly Repurposed” came out in the local Her Voice women’s magazine the first week in May. My next article for them should be in their August issue, “Color Me Green”, an article on my friend, and landscape designer, Jamie Lipke.

My book reviews and articles for the magazine Her Life, a magazine franchise, should start appearing in their June issues in a number of cities across the US and then in July, Her Life will be coming to the Twin Cities, too.

I’m continuing to write my ‘lists of 10 articles’ for my primary client. The Star Tribune picked up one of my articles (these articles are ‘work for hire’ so they never have my name attached) about who to call after flood damage to your home. That was pretty cool.

Let’s see…my first fiction short-short story was accepted for publication in a Minnesota literary journal, The Talking Stick. “The Presence” will come out in their 2011 Fall issue.

I have ghost written blogs for dozen’s of businesses in Canada and the US on topics ranging from accounting, to HR, to small business, to painting, pre-stressed concrete, OH doors and diesel mechanics. I’ve also posted a few gun reviews on Guns.com with a little help from friends and family.

I also wrote three home improvement articles for a new client that will feature some local interior designers and architects. Still waiting for the final approval on those (and a pay check).

I’ve also read more fiction books in the last two months than I have in years. All great books! Amazing isn’t? Getting paid to read books and tell people about them?

I’m also working with a new web client on some weekly spiritual writing. Haven’t quite ironed out all the details, when we have I’ll be sure to clue you all in.

I’m sure I forgot a few things but…like I said, it’s been busy. And that’s a good thing. Right?
