The End of an Error

On Monday at 430 it was determined I would no longer be Editor in Chief at Focus Magazine. My boss and I realized that the position is just not right for me at this time.

I'm going to hit the ground running and try to get as much freelance work as possible.

I knew from the beginning this was too much of a job for me. However, I knew that if I didn't take it I would regret it and wonder "what-if?" for the rest of my life. So, I took it fearing the worst but praying for the best.

I got a lot of experience very rapidly and plan to use this to make my freelance career better than it could have ever been if I had not been Editor for these last 90 days.

To some it would seem like my taking this position in the first place was an error. To me, it was still an oppurtunity for experience I couldn't have gotten any other way!

Who knows if I'll ever end up an editor again. I do know now I'll never say never again. LoL! So you see the oddity in that phrase? Until the chance to be one or to be something else comes, please wish me happy hunting =)


  1. I don't think any experience is a waste, especially when you learn a lot from it! You'll definitely be able to use the skills you picked up from your short time in that position.

  2. First off, let me say that your headline is bomb. It always sucks when we step out in the sky and fall through the clouds as opposed to being caught. However, I know you will hit the ground running and intact. You picked up some invaluable skills while at Focus. Make the experience work for you while exploring future endeavors. good faith my fellow writer : )
