Three quick news updates for y'all! ONE TWO THREE!
1. I'm teaching another round of my online course How to Get Started as a Freelancer, through Hugo House/WetInk. Early Bird pricing runs through December 10, and the class itself runs from January 12 through February 9. You get one lesson per week, and each lesson and its associated assignments should take roughly two hours to complete. Plus, you get to hang out with me and the other students online! It's super fun and you should totally take this class if you're thinking about becoming a freelancer.
2. I always recommend Carol Tice's Freelance Writers Den to early-career freelancers — it's a $25-per-month members-only freelance community that includes a very active forum, plenty of early-career resources, and an exclusive job board — and Den membership opens THIS FRIDAY. Use this link (yes, it's an affiliate link, #fulldisclosure) to learn more about the Den and get notified when membership opens. After this membership period closes, the next one won't open until Summer 2019, so if you're thinking about it... DO IT.
Also, since I've just shown you three ways of... um... giving me money, I want to give you something in return. Please enjoy the YouTube version of The OneUps' Super Mario Sleigh Ride, which is my absolute favorite holiday music track ever recorded. ❤️
