I've been doing a few small jobs here and there, off and on. I'd had a dry spell since the end of November. I got three small jobs in the last few weeks, plus the on again/off again editing work I was doing for a local publishing company. I wasn't selected for one full-time job I applied for, but she could only hire 75 people for the first go around.
I got the contract for it this morning! I'm SO excited. I don't know if I'll be able to handle all the projects I've got going. I told the editor I'll need a leave (she had said that early on that she knows we all have other obligations) and she's always understood when people need breaks.
So now I have to see how much time it will take for the all the writing gigs and may have to drop something. It's nice to be able to say, "No, I don't have time for that job right now."
It's always feast or famine, but God has really supplied a feast of abundance this time.
I would have never been able to have this opportunity if it weren't for FaithWriters and the PM service giving me the first paid job I ever had (originally replied to a non-paid job) and the confidence to get out there. God is SO good.
It also means I may not be here quite as often, so be good
