Nighttime blabbering 381

I finished my very first freelance job with flying colors. And that’s not all. The same employer decided to offer me a second job, but now involving my graphic skills. That’s great because along with great feedback on my writing skills, I am going to get good feedback on my digital design. The way I understood that it’s a really good thing to have a couple of reviews and good commentary as those are often read by the people looking for a working partner. The key to attract employers is to really nail your profile and build it the best way possible while being honest about what are you able to do. Even if you diminish yourself a bit, it can give you a breathing time for when the job is really demanding and sizable. You don’t want to be chained for a computer for the whole day, right? Don’t rattle everything about yourself, what you know and what you don’t know. Leave something for a surprise, use that to show the employer that since you made a profile, you actually did some upgrading and now you are better than the profile says.

In other areas of my life, I am going great with adding parts to the novel from which I need to take a snippet and post it to my Patreon. I plan to take 20 pages, edited in the best way I can do it since English is not my native language. Are 20 pages too much? You tell me. If I post a piece of the novel here, it’s going to be divided into smaller pieces with 5 pages long material. It’s going to take 4 days to post everything, but I will handle it. What do you think? I’d like to hear from you.

    • Thanks. I am finally making a living, but it’s not that great. I just begun working, so it will take time until I get more proficient and demand a bigger hire rate. It’s a step forward and that is all that matters now. 😀 How you’ve been? Haven’t seen you in a long time, Commander.

      • I hear you; progress is progress. You know, I hadn’t realized exactly how long I had been away until I checked the dates on my published blog posts a few moments ago. Holy crap, time flies! In general, though, I am well, thank you. And I would just like to let you know that your dedication to your blog and your craft is impressive and something to aspire to.

        P.S. I’m glad Kitten is still keeping everyone company!

  1. shorter pieces are easier to read in one sitting. what’s short? it depends on the reader.
    congrats on the work – of course, i knew you were good.
    sorry about no-caps, don’t know what’s happened – maybe the keyboard is a bit more broken than it looks.
