Fall is my favorite season without a doubt! The leaves on the trees turn various shades of yellow, red, and orange. The bright yellow school buses can be seen (and heard) throughout the neighborhood as children head back for another year of school. Finally one of my favorite fall things? Gooey caramel apples covered with peanuts! There are many wonderful things to celebrate about fall. What is your favorite thing about fall?

How many established or budding writers are out there on a daily basis trying to be noticed by potential clients? This summer I packed up my teaching supplies after many years in the educational system in order to create my own writing company, thus following my lifelong passion. But the process behind creating a company was a lot more than I imagined! Obtaining EIN numbers, business bank accounts, business PayPal accounts, I wondered when I could actually start writing! Finally, when I could start to create, I found myself having to prove myself through writing proposals and taking tests for websites. I just want to write! I started this company to share my talent with the world, but I have a hard time wading through the initial steps required to start the writing company in order to write. Then there were employers who looked at your writing, praised it, then were never heard from again! This was disheartening. How do writers gain needed exposure when they can barely get a foot in the door? How do you, fellow writers, deal with the issues of employers not getting back, or losing an assignment to one rated lower than you? I am very happy to be free from the daily grind, and I feel much more positive now especially when I write about a topic that excites me! But I would love to know how fellow writers/bloggers deal with starting out in the world of writing!
