So I met up with this great freelance writer for tips about how to pitch stories, write stories, get paid for stories, etc. We chatted for an hour and a half, and I’m now going to be helping him out with some background research.
Overall, the meeting went swimmingly.
I just really hope he wasn’t the guy in the Jeep Wrangler that I almost rammed into upon leaving our coffee shop meeting place.
Here’s for hopin’.
Just spent the last two hours using Vista Print to create the perfect business card … well, it’s probably not the perfect business card … but it’ll do.
I’m trying to spread the word about my writing and look all professional when I meet people in the Boulder community who I want to suck up to, er, let know that I’m a journalist.
The irony comes in the fact that I could have spent that time working on the stories I already have assigned to me.
Especially since, of course, I ended up ordering the first card I designed … about one hour and 43 minutes ago.
