I’m numbering this Daily Check-In but I didn’t number the previous one. I’m whacky.
How did I do on my daily writing goals yesterday?
- I did find two sites that accept freelance work.
- I did not search for, nor find, any content-farm sites.
- I did search Mechanical Turk for writing-related HITs and found none.
- I didn’t work on my novel at all.
- I did keep track of interesting stories; I saved 4 links.
In fact, I submitted some clippings and wrote a writing-specific resume and submitted it to an editor, which took me literally all day because I was anxious about it. But I did, in fact, do it. Finding and saving clippings of my favorite posts took about an hour; and I did it at the bar, because the beer helped quiet that voice in the back of my head.
It was interesting reading back over old posts here. I wrote a lot. And I wrote well, although now, reading back over some of my posts, I can see what I would change. That’s a topic for a post on its own, though.
I also looked into how other writers keep track of their clippings, going as far as setting up my profile at clippings.me and Contently. Feels odd linking to posts here and at Tumblr but that’s what I’ll have to do until I’m published elsewhere, I suppose.
Today’s plans: polish at least one story for submission to the other site I found, work on the novel, add links to my clippings.me and Contently profiles. Maybe a blog post here. I have already searched Mturk and completed a HIT or two.
