While I plan out the business aspect of my freelance writing business, I'm also very much looking forward to expanding my portfolio. Right now, I have a whole swell of news articles, blog posts about animals and pop culture articles. I'd like to master the art of writing a press release, as well as learn more about business writing. I recently dug up a business writing book I had used in college, and that will be my go to guide for business writing. I'd also like to start brushing up on learning other languages, particularly Spanish. I do live in New Jersey, after all.
I guess you can say 2011 is all about three word mottos: expansion, expansion expansion, reading, reading, reading, writing, writing, writing and learning, learning, learning. I'm not going to pressure myself into having to earn more money than I've ever earned, or working eighty hours if I don't have to. I'm simply looking to expand on what I've been doing so far. I'd also like to encourage anyone interested in writing and freelance writing to go for it, and show them how they can by referencing what I've done.
Here's to hoping I can make myself work, work, work more this year, and to all my readers, Happy New Year!
