I’ve recently started working as a freelance writer. By recently I mean that I’ve been doing it for some time but have only just started to get consistent work. There are plenty of qualifying statements to make actually. I’m getting work but it’s requiring a lot of time, effort, and most importantly writing for little reward.

I don’t like not writing. It seems that these days are more filled with words than ever before. I have a number of new projects on the horizon, and I have yet to properly complete my television pilot series.
