The answer to this challenge seems like a no-brainer ("Pitch!") but making time to develop your career can be tricky, especially when you've put the time into developing relationships with editors and your efforts are paying off with regular, decent-enough assignments.
It's easy to say "Yes."
It's even easier to postpone pitching for just another week...
But if you're like most of my coaching clients, eventually you'll have to do something different to stay happy in your career. You'll have to stretch yourself a bit. You'll have to find the time, courage and motivation to pitch:
- ideas you care about more
- better-paying or more prestigious markets
- more meaty, career-building assignments
If this sounds like you, what's standing between you and a thriving freelance writing career? Lack of time? An abundance of fear? Indecision?
A writing career you love is within reach, but you do need to take decisive action and say "Yes" to the challenge.
Send out a new pitch this week. Create a new opportunity for your work.
Your writing career will thank you!
Two Days to Write - an invitation to join us.
If you're lacking structure, community or courage to get your pitches out there, consider joining me for a two-day writing intensive in October or December. Our October group is already active on our forum, and if you're a freelancer who needs to pitch, you'll fit right in!
Spend the weekend with us and you'll get your work done, feel great and gain insight into how to write more productively and sustain your career-building momentum after your intensive. You'll have fun, too!
