I’ve been busy. So busy. I was telling this to my brother the other day when he inquired what, exactly, made me so…our conversation went something like this:
Me: Well, I’m working on two news sites/blogs. Quite exciting …
Josh: Are you getting paid for said sites?
Me: No. But maybe I’ll be able to pick up some advertising at some point.
Me: I’m also working on my first fundraising letter.
Josh: Are you getting paid for that?
Me: No, no I am not. But it’s a good cause. And it will be good experience … good for the ol’ portfolio and all that …
Me: Then there’s the memoir – I need to be working on that.
Josh: You’re not getting paid for that one either, are you?
Me: No sir.
Me: And somewhere amidst it all I need to update my copywriting website.
Josh: While you’re at it, you might as well add “pro bono” to your business cards.
Sigh. It’s true. This year I have done far more “freebies” than actual paid assignments. Still, I remain hopeful that there will come a day when I will, indeed, get paid!
In the meantime, back to my pro bono work …
