Ode to a working freelance writer…

I am a freelance writer – oh how I love to write
Stringing words together, morning, noon and night
It took me quite a while, to give this path a go
Afraid I’d never make it, and that they’d all say no

I started very slowly, beginning with a blog
Years of dreary office work had left me in a fog
I wanted to create; I needed something more
To talk about my work, and not sound like a bore

It’s now a few years later; I’ve amassed a bunch of clips
Some are just a tad mundane, while others – quite a trip
From politics to hummus – sometimes they overlap
Perhaps you’ll disagree with me, but please don’t say it’s crap

As things stand right now, I’ve got some time to fill
Peruse the stuff I’ve written – I might just fit your bill
My writing’s rather good, or so some people say
I’d love to do some work for you – but only if you pay

  4. Contrived Poem!

    When all is done and said
    My writing ain’t half bad;
    Writer’s block’s not a dread
    At least my column’s read –
    My two cents ‘bout each fad…
    Complacent, happy, sad…
    Sensible, wise… or mad!
    More fun I’ve never had…
    There’s nothing more I’d add!

  5. excellent poem – it put a smile on my face.

  7. Beth: Thanks, m’dear! I thought you might! I even had you in my mind when I wrote it!

    epicswife: Thank you! There’s a fine line between reality and dreams sometimes. Wouldn’t be be great if we could be successfully merge reality and dreams? At least I’m managing to bring them closer together.

    Max: Thank you! Please start blogging again. Your blog was so great!

    Tanja: Very nice!

    HSaboMilner: Thank you! If I’ve put a smile on your face, does that mean my work is done here and I can go home now? 🙂

  8. What a great poem, I love it. I am assuming you work from home doing your writings. Isn’t it such a blessing to be out of the office setting and be able to work from your own personal home surrounded by things that inspire you. I also work at home, however, I am not a writer, I create party favors for weddings and special events and I just love the freedom of working from home.
