In re-reading my post about INFP’s I’ve decided that you can do what you love (ie: writing) and get paid for it and still love it.
In the last year I feel like I’ve hit the freelance jackpot after working hard for a long time writing for free. Which by the way, writing for free, for the right kind of websites or blogs, has really paid off. I actually had an editor contact me and ask me to write something for their paid publication, a dream come true, because she read a column I wrote for free. And lately, I’ve been freelancing for Charleston Style and Design and was hired by the lovely Olivia Pool to be the writer for Charleston’s Art Magazine.
I’m writing this update because I asked so many questions in my INFP post about my future and whether I’d be able to make my writing into a career… and I feel like I finally have some answers. Teaching may be in my future some day, but for now I’m thrilled to get paid to write and, I’d even do it for free! 🙂
