Hi Ladies! My name is Amy, I am a freelance writer who has just joined. Don't see much recent activity on the site, are you folks still active?
I was recently laid off from my job as a mental health therapist, so I tried to make lemonade out of my lemons by finally making a serious go at my writing career. Currently writing a column on Examiner.com on abuse and domestic violence (Ends up making you about a quarter an article, so if you are looking for money, Examiner not for you !) Good experience though and it gives me a chance to start building up a published body of work.) Researching other sites and sending out submissions, have one job prospect writing for a teen oriented website that I'm really excited about and I am eagerly awaiting their reply. Also they pay real money, so it will be nice to publish and get paid a respectable amount! Baby steps.
Just wanted to find some like minded individuals for feedback, support and suggestions. Looking forward to hearing back from anyone who responds. Writing is a lonely profession, I'm learning!
