So hello everyone. I have not shared this here yet, but I have an article on Getter Robo on Anime News Network right now. You can read that right here: link. The reason I didn’t share this yet is because I wanted to wait until I started working on a second article before I called my self a contributing writer. So yes, a second pitch has been accepted and I will not tell you what it’s about, but you may have seen a tweet that influenced its appearance. I think it should be a fun one.
Writing for Anime News Network was a complete surprise for me but it was apart of summer of doing many different experimental things. I did have a part time writing internship this summer and I originally thought that would be happy with. I work part time at another job and two part time jobs meant that I had a somewhat full time schedule. Well, I completed my work faster then I thought for that internship in question and there was never more work to get into so I decided to look for something else to do along with it. You know, me being a glutton for being busy.
The first thing I tried was starting up a Fiver account so I do some some free lancing work. After a while, all I got where spam emails about getting paid for giving one person remote access to my computer and that was a big no. Like no way in hell. So after a few months, I shut down my account though I may bring it back in the future. But, I did find some time to help a friend with his book series by reading through his books and writing down some important information. That was a lot of fun and I got to read through books at a pace that I haven’t for a while. It was a paid job too, so all wins there. You should read Ashley Cape’s books. He’s a fantastic author.
Applying to be a contributing writer for Anime News Network was like a “well, what if I give this a try and see what happens” kind of things. I mean, i tried to pitch some work to other anime sites, so I thought that this one would be a no too. Well, apparently it wasn’t. The response came a lot later then I thought it would, but I was happy to received it. So yes, I am a contributing writer on Anime News Network for every once in a while. I still like having more own time an space to writer whatever I want here and I will not be leaving word press at anytime in the near future. I mean, I have to run by pitches and get them approved there. What it means is that I have more places and avenues to expand my reach.
