1. Because I hope to write something that I like.
2. Because if I do so, I would feel happy.
3. Because when I feel happy, I enjoy life better.
4. Because I enjoy life better, I get inspired.
5. Because I get inspired, I write more things that I like.
6. Because I get to create my own circle of happiness! 🙂
Idealistic hopes aside, I have to write more than I expect to write because I just received an assignment. A lifestyle magazine is considering to hire me on a freelance basis and the deadline for the 3-page article is next week. I haven’t even got around to writing the first word yet but I’ve been doing a little reading up on the Internet about the subject matter. I’m planning to sit down and churn it out during my day off this Friday.
Also on Friday, I have an interview with a publishing company who might consider hiring me as a freelance editor. Well, what they’re really looking for is a full-time editor but though chances are slim, chance is still there. Besides, even if they do not hire me now they might keep my CV in view of future projects. Coincidentally, the person I’m due to meet for interview is the very same customer I served at the bookshop! She visited the bookshop last week and I remembered her because she signed up to be a member at the bookshop and I was the one serving her. I remembered her e-mail address as she put in her work e-mail in the registration form.
So I’ve really got a lot to write for this alone, what more with this blogging project! Biting off more than I can chew. 😮 Thankfully, the good thing about blogging is that there are no limitations to what and how much you can write!
