Writing Opportunities – Frustrating for us newbies (Written in 2012 – updated 2017!)

I will keep trawling the opportunities and WILL succeed, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

Don’t you just find it annoying that you find the perfect competition or opportunity to submit a piece of work, only to discover you miss the criteria by being too old, live in the wrong place or have graduated from the wrong university! (BBC!! take note)

I will keep trawling the opportunities and WILL succeed, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger but flippin’ ‘eck it’s blooming frustrating int it!

Update – 2017!!

I’m still plugging away. I am now a full time home worker and authorpreneur so things are looking up! Much more optimistic about the future and still getting frustrated at some of the criteria for competitions and submissions.

I’m so lucky though, I’m pursuing my love of words as a career…enough said.

If you are in a dip, or wondering why after a few weeks you aren’t a millionaire with thousands of followers falling at your feet and hanging on every word (as promised by some on the web) don’t give up. It takes time, resilience and hard hard work. If you are willing to do that, you’ll win!
