This blog follows how a romance novel set in the Borders of medieval Scotland is researched, written and hopefully *hopefully* published.

Join me on the writing journey and get inspired to try writing a little romance into your own life!

Where Does the Time Go?

It feels like forever since I've been here. Man, have I been busy!

The holidays were a whirlwind and I joined Elance (under my real name) in late December. I immediately got a writing job for an online college group that asks you to research colleges and write up accurate and completely original blurbs for them. I got paid pretty quickly and the girl I worked for was very pleasant.

I then picked up a job doing a script for an animated ESL project and they've already set the funds in Escrow (which makes me feel much more secure).

I've looked at other jobs, too, but some of them have ridiculous expectations (and, quite frankly, want someone to do all the work for them for a pittance). There is one I'd really enjoy, I think, but we'll see how it all comes out.

Other than that--

Lots of things going on for my real name... ;-) I'm illustrating a great children's book (we're doing it all at a very relaxed pace) and will post links to it after we're more comfy with our web-presence.

And the farm--well--It's a lot of work, but how much of a surprise is that, really? I actually have found myself with free time recently...Spooky!

Hope all's well with you all!

Congrats on the freelancing!

Could you, when you have time, stop by Brand New Aspiring Writers and tell the rest of the members about elance?

That'd be great!

Bye for now,

Take care!
