Last Year, I Started Freelancing



In January of 2015, I made an online declaration that I was going to finally become a paid writer.  Many would argue that if you write then you are a writer.  I agree with this statement.  100%.  Knowing that I was writer was hard enough.  Getting brave enough to put myself out there so that I could eventually be hired was another.


I started a website called NotNowImWriting to track my progress in 2015.  I am happy to say that I was actually busy enough that I did not feel like blogging about it.


The site is still active now, and I do write on it from to time.  I use it to log word counts, projects, and little tricks that I learn along the way about writing a professional in a field.

Barbara Burgess is a writer which is made apparent by the text in this box and the box above. She is best known for being a multi-genre/multi-writing voice author who throws caution to the wind when describing her writing career - "Oh, I write children's books, holiday romance, and sci-fi. Why? What do you do? Just one thing?" In addition to being a writer of all the things, she is the founder of Pilgrim Fowl Press and a writing facilitator bringing permission to write to the masses via Skillshare and Udemy. The only social media she frequents is Instagram (@hellothisisbarbara). Her desert island movie is Stargate (the original with James Spader), and she has been taking daily mug shots of her morning coffee since before Instagram was even a thing.
