I've Been a Busy Bee

Heyyy, everyone. I am going to have to set aside a day to get back to people, which I have done before, but I wanted to throw up a quick blog post to let my connections on here know how I have been doing.

I have been busy, busy, busy these past few days. I went shopping with my best friend on Friday, and then to a surprise birthday party for my Mommy on Saturday. :) My teenage niece and I went to see The Peanuts Movie on Sunday afternoon, and then I went out with my sister and brother-in-law that evening. Yesterday was babysitting, writing and watching WWE Raw. Today was babysitting, trying to make things work for another client and now I am working on other assignments. I’m kind of tired, so let me make a long story short… I had to turn down some work because the person in charge of that project did not like my other work, and I did not feel qualified to do the next six assignments. I am not knowledgeable in law-related topics, I did not understand the examples and well… they didn’t really like my style. It happens with freelance writing, so I am not sitting here with ill-feelings. I mean, it comes with the territory. But I have a feeling the two assignments under review will actually be declined, and I’m not willing to go back and forth with the editor only to have the next six declined. I’m not a fit for that project, and that project is not a fit for me. I remained professional, apologized for the inconvenience, thanked them for letting me try the work and told them I was open to discussing projects in the future. I am working on other assignments on a different website, so the work is there. I just don’t like to leave anyone in a jam, so I do hope they found a writer who is a better fit, and quickly.

I am going to be spending the next two days babysitting and writing. It will either be running errands or just babysitting/writing on Friday.

I will not be online Saturday, as I am going to my six-year-old niece’s birthday party, and it’s LEGO themed. :) We’ll play Sunday by ear lol.

Right now I’m watching Orphan on SyFy, sipping on some decaf since it’s late and finishing up my work. You all have a good evening and take care. :)

I can see how busy you have been but I am glad that I see you posting again

I admire you for the freelance writing that you are doing. I have never tried it. Is it very hard to write and babysit at the same time?

Thanks! I do what I can lol.

Thank you very much. I don't do both at the same time. He's at the point where he's very active (he's a toddler), so it's not that easy to do. He is here in the morning/afternoon, and then I start on my freelance writing once he is picked up in the late afternoon, which is why I am not always on here.

That I can understand. I imagine you earn a lot more with your freelance writing than what you make here.
