In a post yesterday afternoon, (“Writer for Hire: has “A Way With Words”) I revealed that I was fully embarking on a career as a writer.
Last night, a Toronto psychologist (Richard Amaral of Psychology for Growth) sent me an e-mail asking if I would be interested in editing his book. We discussed the terms today and, when I checked my e-mail this afternoon – there it was, ready for me to review.
In some LinkedIn messages last night, I put out word that I was exploring doing freelance work (and possibly an internship) doing projects related to writing (Technical Writing, Copywriting, Marketing, Editing, Social Media, etc…)
This morning I had a message back from Elizabeth Mellencamp Johnson of The Mediation Point, asking if I might be interested in helping her with the launch of her upcoming book.
Yesterday, I sent a message to a Facebook friend David Anderson of Dave Anderson & Associates inviting him to lunch to discuss ways I might better market my writing and editing services. Over baguette sandwiches, Dave offered a wealth of helpful information and agreed to help me set up a website.
God’s timing is impeccable, wouldn’t you say?
Not all our prayers are answered so quickly, of course. Sometimes God’s answer to our prayers is, “Wait.” Sometimes it is, “No.” There are times, however, when God’s answer to our prayers is “Here you go.” And what glorious moments those are!
Note about my new blog sub-title: You may notice that my sub-title has changed (again). What once was “God is ‘I Am’, Therefore I Think (and write)” is now “Writing for Well-Being”. I made this change not because I wanted to take God out (in fact, God is still present in writing and must be present for well-being). No, I made this change to be less philosophical and more practical. “Writing for Well-Being” describes both the therapeutic aspect of blogging for me as well as, I hope, the positive impact good writing has on readers.
I’m interested to hear from you – “What do you think of the change?”
