Before I left NZ in May 2010, I'd built up quite a stable of publications that ran my freelance work.
Getting back into the freelancing saddle takes some doing - editors change, relationships have to be built, blah blah. And there's that whole thing of having to once again prove yourself as not only a good writer, but one who respects deadlines and word counts.
Today I was lucky enough to have a piece accepted by the Sunday Star Times magazine, which is imaginatively called Sunday. Back BB (Before Bristol) I used to file a lot profiles and essay-type pieces for this mag, so it's nice to be re-admitted to those pastures.
This afternoon I was also commissioned to write a travel piece for an Auckland publication so, all in all, a very productive day.
