Collaborative Pieces Are Where It’s At, As a Working Writer
In the past months I’ve been copywriting up a storm, so I haven’t spent as much time on getting longer pieces published. However, I’ve kept my online writing presence alive by participating in collaborative pieces like the TWO CENTS column on Cinapse, a list of tips about how to be a Hip Mama on Refinery 29, and movie reviews, like the one I wrote about the film HER.
Starting next week, I’ll be recapping/reviewing each episode of HBO’s GIRLS, as a collaborative “He said/She said” piece with my fellow Cinapse writer, Victor. And of course I’m still blogging, and writing in print for GGMG Mag.
I’m grateful for these ways to dip in and stay current, while I figure out the balance of writing as a career with writing as my way of life, and creative wellspring. As 2014 gets underway, I find myself so grateful for writing. I really didn’t let myself write until I was a 30 year old mother, but I’m so glad it was there waiting for me, all along.
