And, I’m still wobbling around and walking on bloody knees…

The only reason I’m able to attempt a regular blog post today is the aid and assistance of my Best Friend, Jane Watson—read about her Here & Here

It’s important to point out that I’m absolutely certain God sent Jane to me (even though she might relish an opportunity to provide a different perspective...)—there is no other explanation in my mind for how and why she entered my life and the fact that, having never met face to face, she continues to nurture and support me…

Still, this post will be rather short with hope for renewed blogging ability as the days creep forward…

Back in August of 2014 I wrote the post, Freelance Lies . . .

Today, I’ll share the bullet points {hoping they interest you enough to take the link} from an article on Jane Friedman‘s site called, 4 Freelancing Myths That Are Holding You Back.

Here are the lies:

1. You need “connections” to land assignments.

2. You have to live in New York City to succeed.

3. You have to follow writers’ guidelines.

4. You shouldn’t quit your day job.

If you’ve ever considered freelancing, you owe it to yourself to check out the full article…
