Meet Lord Robert Jennings:
Freelance writing is not an easy career choice. I know from experience. Since becoming a freelancer, I’ve hit just about every possible roadblock out there, from lack of clients to lack of motivation. I’ve gotten some good advice, and some no-so-good advice. I’ve been everywhere from Cloud 9 to inches away from File 13, and I like to think I’ve picked up a thing or two along the way.
One of the things I’ve learned is that there’s about a million people out there willing to tell you how great you are and that you’re doing things just fine. But, if you’re like me, that’s not what you need. If you’re going to improve, you need to know what you’re doing wrong.
Don’t get me wrong. I think you’re kick-awesome.
But I also believe in tough love, and I’m willing to be the person who delivers it. Praise is wonderful, and it’s great for self-esteem, but it does not foster improvement.
I have had the pleasure of working as a ghostwriter for the novel Rogue’s Phoenix: Thieves and Kings, which is an epic fantasy story — the first in a trilogy of which I’ll be ghostwriting all three books.
I’ve recently been asked to be the editor of a social media blog at CassieWitt.com, which is an incredible learning experience.
My experience as a copyeditor transcends employment and spills over into my personal life. I’m “that guy” who gets frustrated when he finds typos in books or on websites. I’ve always had the desire to clean up copy. Now, I have the opportunity.
