Good vibes, please

My conference has been really great. Today, I got two potential big freelance projects. Do I have time for these projects? Not really. But here's the rub--in the next few years I want to transition into doing freelance full time, so I need to build up my clients now--while I still have a full time job and am in school. So, the overachiever/worrier in me finds it impossible to turn stuff down. I'll have to make time somewhere if these pan out...

Tomorrow I will be giving a 90 second "shameless pitch" on the heart transplant memoir I am ghost writing. There will be an agent and a few editors who rate the pitch and can decide to work with you based on it. There are also 100s of other attendees watching you. Kind of like a dweebier version of American Idol. I am crazy nervous, especially since a few co-workers will be in the audience. It's one thing to flop in front of strangers... another to flop in front of people I'll have to see on Monday morning! So, please send me good vibes! Best Blogger Tips

Congrats on the new project and good luck with your pitch. When you have time, I'm tagging you to answer the meme "To Whom Am I Blogging?"

Hope it goes (went) well. I laughed at your description of it as like a dweeb's Idol! With your wonderful sense of humour, you're sure to be a winner.

I missed out on sending the good vibes but hope it went well. Congrats on getting some freelance work. I too look at the next few years as transitional and know that they will require taking on too much sometimes.

Hey bug- I also missed the good vibe giving, but you can count them as pretty much always coming your way. I'm absolutely sure you did great. Congrats all the way around. I don't know how you do it all. I really don't.
