Lopez, Terry Tempest Williams, et al.) spend the first half of the book
discussing creative nonfiction and the second half demonstrating it. Not
only does the format work, but pairing the works of creative nonfiction with
the accompanying commentary is educational and entertaining. These authors
know how to get published and will help you too!
An Investment That Paid
Karyn Martin was cautious about launching her freelance
career online, but she soon got results:
"I remember the days when I dreamed of being a
freelancer," she says. "The word seemed magical to me somehow. Romantic,
almost. Now, after having actually been a freelancer for a while, the scales
have been lifted from my eyes and I have seen the light. You pay for being able
to manipulate your time. You pay by working more, working harder, and -
hopefully - working smarter. But what you get in return is priceless. Now I can
call the shots about when I work, for whom I work, and how much I make."
One day, Karyn decided she was no longer willing to commute in
smog-laden traffic to sit in a cubicle for eight hours, come home, eat, sleep,
wake up, and then do it all over again.
So she decided to become a freelancer - but how would she find work?
She had spent endless hours surfing the 'net, signing up with one freelance
site after another. Yet there was an incredible amount of competition. She
never seemed to win any bids, and was adamant about not lowering her hourly
"Then I discovered Go Freelance," she says. "I had heard "don't pay to
work!" repeatedly, and I was too poor to risk getting scammed, but I took a
chance one day when I was flush and sent twenty bucks to gain access to the Go
Freelance Professional Edition.
"Since then, I've edited a sales letter, a follow-up letter, an
11-page Web site, and a brochure. I'm 'on call' to do pinch-hit proofreading
for a medical newsletter editor in Florida while he's on vacation, sick, etc.
And I've landed a gig editing a new Canadian magazine coming out this fall. All
this from taking a $20 chance on Go Freelance."
