Another Newbie! Can't Post

Hey everyone! I am a first timer to the P&W site (I just signed up today) and am stopping by to say hello. I have been writing since I could hold a pencil but it's only been in the past 5 years that I have truly decided to take it seriously at the urging of my closest friends. I am usually quite reclusive and rarely show myself on any forums but in light of the fact that I have just officially started my freelance career, I realized that I have to become a people person (or as close as I can come to it!) in order for my business to take off and thrive!
I am a single mom of 2 awesome kids. I am an EMT and a writer. Working as diligently as I can, I am trying to make writing my only necessary job! I would love to make travel writing a niche so I can travel the world after the kids are off on their own new, exciting journeys!
I feel chaotic about this freelance business, though, as I'm trying to organize and grasp all the 'business' aspects of it!
I look forward to all the great people I'll meet as I gather experience and information from P&W!
Thanks, Shannon

Welcome, Shannon.

Freelance writing is a tough gig. I've done just enough of it to see how much work it would be to support myself. Let's see what we can do to help you succeed.
