Writing my way to becoming a freelancer


As I work my way through How to start a home-based Writing Business by Lucy Parker, the goal is to gain writing clips and samples (preferably from paid projects). As I do so, I will add them here. However, I am not a complete rookie. In the last year I have had over 40 articles published in nationally distributed magazines and have worked with several clients to develop marketing kits, press releases, PR Materials, web content and sales letters. I have held my current full-time position for two years, and plan to continue working with that company for the foreseeable future. However, my goal is to also build a profitable freelance writing business on the side. For more on this, check out my Goals page.
