It feels a lot like the last day of school. I’ve arrived at the final lesson in Gina Horkey’s 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success. At this point, I’ve learned all I need to make it in this industry.

Instead of posting every day, I’ll fill this time with pitching. I set a goal of sending out ten pitches daily. more My Sweet November: Day 29 Become an Affiliate

In Lesson 28: Hire a Mentor, Gina says she began working with a mentor from the very beginning. I keep thinking I should do this, but I’m not exactly sure whether or not I should pursue it right now.

Taking on this project means that other things get pushed back. The mentor thing is one of them. Ideally, I’d love to work with Gina because she’s exactly where I want to be in seventeen months. I just haven’t approached her, yet.
