Tomorrow marks two months since I moved from the woods in the Adirondacks to the little city in Vermont. Although it has been only 60 days, I feel like I’ve lived here for a long time. In other words, that’s how at home I feel in Brattleboro. There’s a bit of everything to keep me occupied from art galleries, bookstores, coffee shops to all the services I need in case of mechanical or medical emergencies.
Now that I am 100 percent settled in my pretty big abode, it’s time to start knocking on some doors for work. Yes, that’s right, I need more work.
I’m a firm believer in asking the Universe for help. When Greg died, the Universe came to my rescue via various ways: the generosity of friends, more work that came through the pipeline, social services that allowed me some respite in the house’s upkeep and a childhood connection that led me to Brattleboro.
I am grateful and humbled. The outpouring of love from friends and family has changed me. I am less critical. I keep the snark in check and I thank the Universe on a daily basis for its help.
But I need help again and that’s finding more writing gigs. I am asking the Universe to give me the strength to become a skilled networker. I’m not very good at it. Most of the time, I feel my persistence is annoying and I back off. I’ve come to the realization, though, that if I don’t ask for work or help, I won’t get any. That’s why I am pinning to my shirt a virtual Writer for Hire sign. Do you need web copy for your company? I can write it. Do you need a pitch letter or a press release? I can write it. Need content for client blogs? I can write it.
If you have an opportunity and need help, please feel free to get in touch with me. I can provide a resume, numerous writing samples, and we can discuss rates.
And now…back to work.
