When someone asks what I do, it’s an internal startle initially. Really, you do something, I have to remind myself. You have a real business. Get it together, Koci.
So a similar insecurity surfaces right now . . . even though writing daily for 31 days doesn’t feel scary when I verbalize it. After all, writing is my job. If I don’t write every day, then that’s a quite the hiccup in what I do for a living.
Yes, writing is what I do daily, for a living and for my heart and for my soul and for clients and all that jazz and more.
So here we are, and I’m about to share 31 Days of Freelance Writing.
My hope and prayer is to share my encouragement, candid advice and honest experience. Whether you’re a freelance writing veteran (in which case, let’s chat . . . because I want to learn from you!) or entirely new, fingers crossed you’ll leave this series better at your craft. It’s my unofficial guide to what I do, friends. No secrets here: I’ll share everything I do and don’t know. The world will be a better place if it has better writers, so I’m excited to get vulnerable, get honest and share it all.
I spent the tail end of last week at the Influence Conference. What I learned this year was entirely different from last year, in a very precious and very good way. I’ll be sprinkling those insights throughout the next 31 days.
Rewind to 2010 and had you told me I owned a writing business, I wouldn’t have believed you. Really. I’m just as surprised as anyone about what I do today. So let’s move forward together, shall we?
- Do you want to become a freelance writer?
- Are you already a freelance writer and you want to get better?
- Have you been a freelance writer forever or something that feels like forever? Then email me, so I can interview you. (And that’s sarahkoci at gmail dot com, if you’re interested.)
- Do you have a heart for words . . . and do you want to share that heart by serving others?
Then, friends, you’ve come to the right place.
Tomorrow, October 1, we’ll get rolling. Bring your pen and a notebook, because I want you along for the ride.
