Where do we go from here?

Phase one is complete; I managed to survive 2008. Update - netted around $22,000 in eight months, worked myself into the ground doing it, and met about five hundred awesome people.

I now have friends in New York, Rhode Island, Nevada, Indiana, Illinois, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, India, and everywhere else you can imagine. Best of all, they GET me and the whole writing thing, snce most of them are writers too.

Helium is still on my roster. I'm a very active provider on Elance, and pick up quite a nice bundle of work from private clientele as well. I'm up from $5 an article to $25-$50.

I have a stable of peeps - we call ourselves the hack writers' guild, and I'm teaching them the ropes. It's the least I can do after all the encouragment I got last year!

Planning the launch of my own freelance firm and learning site in early 2010 - this year is for setup. I have huge plans for my future, and want to pay it forward, so I think I'll take as many peeps as I can with me!

2008 was great, 2009 will be better, and I can't wait for 2010! here's to success, whwerever we find it and whatever it means to us.
