My Own Boss or Bust!
“It is impossible to win the great prizes in life without running risks.” -Teddy Roosevelt
Welcome to the Free Writing Events website! In February 2016, I dove full-time into self-employment as an editor and author. I’ve come a long way already: I started the Free Online Events Calendar and @writevent Twitter, I won three short story contests and was published 4 times, and I’ve earned seven full manuscript requests via querying (yes, they all failed, but it’s a start!). My ultimate goal is to get an agent and keep my editing income steady. And yes… I’m still terrified of failure. Aren’t we all?
