…keeps the creditors away!
No seriously…I don’t know how anyone does it. I have just spent the better part of mid-day working on a pitch — well, two — tailored for one specific magazine. I’ll sit on that one for a little while – let’s hope I hear back. Then I’ll move down to the next market and give it a go.
It’ll be a lot easier to devote my undivided attention to queries once I leave my day job. My last day is next Friday – woohoo! Maybe I’ll spend a lazy 4th of July weekend brainstorming. That’s the only problem with freelancing full-time: your work is never done.
