Have You Updated?
Happy summer! Now that school's out, I'm FREE to write! Bring it on!
Actually I'm wanting to do some work-for-hire like I used to do as well as work on my own manuscripts. So I prayed for work to come in. And it did! One client is a repeat client, Tuttle Singapore. But a new client, Oxford University Press, contacted me this week, wanting me to write for their educational books. She's based out of Hong Kong. I asked her how she found me. Her answer--my profile on the SCBWI website! She was/is looking for Asian writers for a specific cultural project. And then I thought--oh no, have I even updated my profile? What does it show? So this past week I updated that, plus my profile on Linked In which was long overdue.
So the bottom line is--make sure all your profiles and web pages are updated because you never know how you'll land a writing contract!
And if you happen to be a Malaysian freelance writer, she's looking for one. Let me know, and I can connect you!

Congratulations, Tina! I'm so happy for your answered prayer. (God is good!) And thank you for the reminder to update. I haven't updated my LinkedIn profile since I first joined more than 5 years ago. It's not urgent, so I keep putting it off.
