Baby Steps

This past week has been an interesting journey.  I decided to leave my writing in the box for now and picked up some content writing jobs instead.  The assignments are short nonfiction articles for blogs and websites on various topics chosen by the client.  It doesn’t pay well, but it does get me writing every day which is what I need the most right now.  There are no bylines or any of the stress of pitching ideas or the waiting for acceptance.  With content writing I know within days if the assignment is acceptable.  This is definitely a confidence booster because short of absolutely atrocious writing, everything I write will be accepted. I know that I can’t fail.  Content writing also allows me to develop my skills as a writer improving grammar, punctuation and article structure so that when I finally land an article assignment my writing will be flawless.
