Happy first day of fall!
No talk of pumpkin spice everything here. No time for that—not that I don’t love it all, though. I’m happy that this insanely busy week is finally coming to an end. Hope it was a productive one for you, too.
Today’s writing jobs list has it all: online writing jobs for freelancers who want to work from home, onsite Canadian writing jobs for my fellow canucks, and I even managed to get some calls for submissions on the list.
My apologies to anyone who has tried to reach me this week. I’m hoping to have time to sit down and reply to each message over the weekend. I appreciate every single one of you who takes the time to get in touch.
