More on this freelance writing thing

I’ve decided to make it official. Yes, I’ve decided to do this freelance writing thing full-time. HAH. I have two main reasons for finally doing this: one, I am actually enjoying this writing thing even if it hasn’t paid me much (yet!); and two, I can’t imagine myself going back to the corporate world and I realized that I don’t have to. I just need to make a few adjustments to my schedule and perspective to turn this little hobby into my real job.

So you know I already have a few writing gigs on oDesk, which is really cool because it gives me a little bit of variety in terms of writing assignments.  I also just signed up as a freelance writer with a local company. I get paid based on how much I’ve done and I can work anywhere – at home or at their Ortigas office. I just started so I’m still in the process of getting a feel for the system and all that, but eventually I will be able to control the number of assignments I get. So basically the amount of work I have to do and how much I want to earn is pretty much up to me. WOOHOO! No work, no pay. Hah. Welcome to the freelancer’s world, eh? :P

Aaand that’s where I’m at right now. Operation Jump is off to a good start. I think. Yayyyy.
