I know that I always complain about not getting a writing job. Whining that my precious talents are beginning to be a waste since I am only writing correspondences that already have a format, you just have to click ‘print’ and it’s good to go.
Well, I found three a few weeks back.
Two for a magazine and one for a newspaper.
I emailed my CV on two of those and left out the one for the paper. You see, I saw the ad right after reading the crits the people gave me for my story. I got depressed with the comments though I was expecting it already. I have a
problem BIG problem with regards to my tenses (i know that).
The newspaper was looking for a features writer and I wanted that position. However, I knew it would never happen mainly because I’m tied with the company… meaning I need to devote my time 24/7 to them or else they would deport me.
Today is the last day of submission and I don’t have the enthusiasm to write and tell them how interested I am. If I were in the Philippines, I’d immediately jump on that opportunity.
Now, I feel I am not ready for that position not unless I practice and practice (my writing)… It’s so frustrating… I’m frustrated…
Well, not that much… I am still looking forward on something… I asked a friend to hook me up for any writing stint even if they won’t pay me as long as I can practice and if the time comes I feel confident about my work then maybe, I can charge don’t you think so?
I guess people from the real world are right: YOU CAN’T HAVE THEM ALL.
Until now, I haven’t got any word for the two slots I’ve applied for… I guess they don’t find me suitable.. sheesh
