First Paycheck as a Writer!
Tuesday, July 26, 2011 5:05 PM
Well, I guess this makes it official. I'm a freelance writer and copy editor for the new Electric Vehicles Magazine. I received my first paycheck in the mail today for a grand total of $265! The first issue of the magazine isn't out yet, but as soon as it is I'll have links on this blog to any content I generate. It's turning out to be a fairly regular gig as I'm in regular contact with the editor and already have a few more pieces coming down the pipeline.

Progress on the novel, unfortunately, has slowed. I completed the twenty second chapter a few days ago, leaving me eight or nine to go. If I had gotten one a week done per the original plan I'd be done by now. I think that's what really stings. However, knowing my time has been going to other writing projects, especially ones that yield a paycheck, has really lessened that sting. You have to take the good with the bad, as they say, and I can only crack the whip over myself so hard.

Until next time, I'm Eric and I really don't feel unpublished any more.
