I want to write about running. Correction: I want to write about me running. It’s fun. I love it. Obviously.
Dream project? A running memoir, which I’ve started about eight times then lost confidence. Writing about running in real-time is way better than writing about past running experiences, don’t you think? Anyway, I lose steam.
New dream project? Getting paid to write a mom-running column for a newspaper or magazine or Web site. I’m qualified: former newspaper features editor, freelance writer, copy writer. Oh yeah, and I’m a mom-runner but you already knew that. I do deadlines, and can handle criticism extremely well (or at least act like I can). Also, I’m pretty cheap.
I figure if I don’t make my wants known then nothing will ever happen. So there it is. It’s out there. It’s real.
Oh yeah, the other thing I want is a pair of black riding boots for fall. Not that I’m going riding, but I want to look like I might go riding, you know, after work or something. Just thought I should put that out there, too, in case anyone’s got a freelancing gig and footwear included in one package.
Way to put it out there, Kerrie! I sooo believe in karma… boots and all! :-)*hugs* from a fellow freelance writer!
Yes, it's good to get it out there. Keep visualizing.
Awesome! I want the riding boots too, but not for real riding…unless riding in my mini van counts:)
So, I used to ride in middle school/high school…and totally have my old boots stashed somewhere within my parent's house. My next trip home (for YGG) , I am committing to finding them. And seeing if they fit. YEAHHH.I got a really amazing pair of Frye's last year that I snuggle with at night. They were $$, but will last for years.
I hope that putting it all out there brings good things to you!
i want some black riding boots, too. let me know when you find some cute ones! 🙂
You go for it! Can't wait to read your first column! Winks & Smiles,Wifey
