My Freelance Writer Resume
While my freelancing story may have started eight years ago, it isn’t actually the beginning. Nor is September 2008 when I practically started my writing career, as a print journalist for a local newspaper. The beginning lies way before my freelance writer resume timeline you’ll find below.
My story may have begun in 2000, in my first real attempt to grab life by the horns and get accepted into a renowned English class, at a local high-school. I failed miserably as my English skills were far below the level required at that time. I could tell you about my first meeting with the teacher who examined me in 2000, about the surprise on her face I was still able to get admitted into that high-school. “What are you doing here?” she asked me as if my place wasn’t there to begin with. But these are probably just details.
My journey may have begun at 16 when I had discovered the Internet and had begun immersing myself into its amazing digital universe. On the Internet, you could be whoever you want: a football manager taking your team to unimaginable heights and yes, even a writer. It was at 16 I landed my first writing ‘job,’ delivering (virtual) match reports to a magazine on a weekly basis. It wasn’t a real magazine, it was just a part of the ManagerZone (online multiplayer management gaming platform) universe. Nevertheless, it felt real and when an article I wrote gathered so much steam I was asked to translate it to English (I was writing in my native Romanian language at that time), it felt as real as it can get.
Yes, my freelancing adventure may have even begun at 18, just after high-school, when I tried to get admitted into Journalism School in Bucharest. Once again, I failed miserably, not still ready for the path laid before me. I did manage to get accepted into the Faculty of Economic Sciences, part of a local university, though. Four years later, I was finally ready to embrace my destiny and started building my freelance writer resume.
