FREEDOM FREELANCE WRITING (FFW) is a private project to help freelance writers in achieving their financial freedom while letting them be what they always wanted to be…writers. At FFW, we are writers first and everything second. Here’s what Anne Lamott would say:
You are lucky to be one of those people who wishes to build sand castles with words, who is willing to create a place where your imagination can wander. We build this place with the sand of memories; these castles are our memories and inventiveness made tangible. So part of us believes that when the tide starts coming in, we won’t really have lost anything, because actually only a symbol of it was there in the sand. Another part of us thinks we’ll figure out a way to divert the ocean. This is what separates artists from ordinary people: the belief, deep in our hearts, that if we build our castles well enough, somehow the ocean won’t wash them away. I think this is a wonderful kind of person to be.
…because there is so much truth in this one:
Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.
Hey, at FFW, we want to have fun in writing. Money and financial freedom will follow soon after. But let’s just fall in love with this awesome art form that has the power to sway nations, bring down empires and enwrap human souls in a glorious form.
