August! Where did it go?!
This was my third month back in the world of freelance writing, and it was slightly quieter than July, but in a good way. I’ve had enough projects on the go that I haven’t felt any anxiety, but I’ve also had time and space to work on the admin side of things: business cards, tax returns, invoice templates and the like.
I’ve also added a few more testimonials to this site – many thanks to those colleagues and clients who have taken the time to write such kind words.
Earlier in the month I finished a couple of really interesting copywriting projects for the University of Tasmania: one was a flyer relating to their STEM work, and one was a recruitment pack. The designer who took my copy for the recruitment pack and turned it into something beautiful was Pabs & Co, and based on their great work and fast turnaround I’d definitely recommend them if you’re looking for a graphic designer.
On the feature writing side, I had one piece published this month with The Lifted Brow. It was an exploration of some of the fantastic artistic and cultural activity taking place in Tasmania, and if you’re interested you can read it here: More than MOFO: A tour Guide to Tasmania’s Thriving Regional Art Centres.
I also found time for a quick post on my own blog DorkyMum. It was about how easy this winter has been in Tasmania. Of course, the day after I wrote it we had thunderstorms and snow, which I guess serves me right.
Other than that, I wrote a grant application, submitted a guest post for the writer Louise Allan’s wonderful series Writers in the Attic, and pitched for a major copywriting project that would keep me busy until the end of the year if I was successful. I’m hoping to hear about that one any day now – fingers crossed!
As ever, if you’ve got a project I can help with – copywriting, features or social media – please get in touch. I’d love to chat.
