I have finally put my big girl pants on and am now dedicated to making my dreams come true on my own. At least I am trying.
Applying to jobs in the field of communications have been a bust. After two long years I finally got the hint. If I want in, I have to dig my own tunnel and create my own door.
I have been successful in getting a few works published but the amount printed and the queries rejected cannot be compared.
I am still pitching, that will never stop. Though I got to say, being rejected as much as I have takes a toll on the high spirits. My new approach is to network.
Through Instagram, LinkedIn, trying to figure out Facebook, networking is key.
I have decided to sign myself up with Upwork. I find joy in feeling validated when responding yes, to the question, “are you a writer?”
That is the plan for now. Keep writing, connecting and putting my work out on the web.
You want something done right, you got to do it yourself.
