I shared the above on my Facebook personal account and on all three of my business pages.
I am quite capable of making money in my field…if people would take a chance on me. What I find interesting is the sheer arrogance of potential employers who can look me in the eye in an interview and tell me that I should have been out there making money in my field all this time, yet these same potential employers are the ones telling me that I have not worked enough in the field for them to take a chance on me.
How exactly do I get experience in my field?
I’m a writer. I write.
Can I prove that I write?
Read my blog entries. Check out my social networking presence. Google me. Look me up on Amazon.
Am I a prolific writer?
That denotes a writer who produces many works. I have. I will. I do. If it connotes a writer who has actually published many works, yes, that too, in the form of poems, short stories, essays, articles, and two books.
I do not have the same bibliographic length as Mr. Philip M. Parker, but I’m actually writing. I have unpublished works in files stored on my hard drive. I keep sending them out to potential publishers. They keep coming back. My two books available for purchase are self published, but that is prohibitively expensive to continue to do for multiple titles when you have no other sources of income and no one is purchasing the existing books.
I am ready, willing, and able to work on any project. I really need projects that bring in income, but if you’re really passionate about a project that has the potential to be lucrative in the future I may be willing to work on it on a contracted basis, but no matter what happened you’d still owe what you promised. I do not work completely for free, even for friends and family. I may just allow people to delay payment, kind of like a layaway plan for services rendered.
I would prefer to earn money as a freelance writer to the point that I don’t have to apply for and jump through flaming hoops for public assistance programs. I would prefer to not have to keep applying for jobs far afield of my field and then getting rejected by those potential employers because I am overqualified. I would prefer to not feel like I have to grovel at job interviews and dumb myself down during the application process.
I am a writer. I write well. You need me to write for you. You need me to edit your writing. You need me to help you with basic layout and design issues for something you’re planning on publishing. You need me to help you organize your filing cabinets. You need me to read your three year old bedtime stories in funny voices. You need me to alphabetize your gym socks. You need me to write your phone scripts for the mornings when you wake up hungover and need to know what to say to the boss about why you cannot show up to your plush corner office. You need me to ghostwrite that novel you’ve always wanted to write but never had the talent for. I’ll let you take all of the credit if you let me take a chunk of money off of your debit or credit card for services rendered.
