Gone are the days when writers would be paid by the word and could crank out serials for all kinds of publications. Nowadays, we’re writing for free on blogs that get lost in so much internet noise. Despite my better judgement, and that of my family and friends, I gave up my day job to become a full time writer. I’m scraping together different freelance jobs and trying to make my way. I’m learning as I go, and I want to use this blog as a place to practice, write about my experiences, and use it as samples for prospective clients. I’m Patrick, it’s nice to meet you.
