Freelancing

An Anarch’s Pledge

If you need aid, I will try to give it,

If you are unheard, I will listen,

If you are sad, I will pull funny faces and make terrible puns until you are not,

If you start to sing, I will join in,

If you are alone – we are here.

We do these things because we are animals, we are humans, because we are interconnected.

What can I help with specifically?

Work-from-home advice, best remote-office practices, apps, and online work platforms if you need to translate your work life to digital.

Formatting, copy writing and copy editing, desktop publishing either for print or digital production.

Skype and Zoom connect-ups.

Creative (written word predominantly) advice, mentoring, story-wrangling, or encouragement.

Gaming theory, critique, beta-testing & nerdlandia (trad board games and pen-and-paper RPGs only).

I can share songs, with campaign/social solidarity/peace focus.

I can share gardening war-stories.

Contact me through theĀ About page.

Some platforms you can always pick up a gig or two:

Upwork – largest site for every digital worker from code to illustration and writing.

Guru – slightly smaller version of the above.

People-per-hour – very piecemeal gig work.

Fiver– see above, but more so.

Freelanced – brilliant community and portfolio sections, but job competition can be fierce.

Zirtual – specializing in virtual PA’s.

Sitting in the mailbox is the latest rejection. That inevitable tide of feeling “what did I do wrong?” They’ve become so numerous now that over the years it’s almost like seeing an old friend. Well, maybe not a ‘friend’ per se – or maybe that friend who turns up at your house drunk and trashes your kitchen and is sick on your cat – but still, someone you know well.

It’s normal too, for the insides of your head to be screaming “I’m A Fraud! I’m A Fraud!” like some maniacal demon. Especially when you’re just starting out on your career.
