Small Victories

Every author wants to pen a best seller, a story, book, play, or song that knocks the senses out of a multitude of people.  I am no different, I want the same thing, but I will take small victories along the way to that path of fame and fortune and if I never actually walk that path, I will have my small victories as a testament that I at least accomplished something as a writer.

Yesterday I received an email from a service that points authors towards paying writing gigs.  This email told about how you can make a decent income from Fiverr.  I have completed a few gigs on Fiverr in the past but I did not see it as much of an income generator but the email intrigued me enough to give the site another shot.  So I posted a gig telling people that I would write 100 words for them on any subject in any genre for $5.00.  Almost immediately I was contacted by a site called Right Pet.  They asked me if I was a pet owner and could I write two short reviews of past pets for $5.00?  I said I could, so they put in an order which I fulfilled in about 1/2 hour.  This is the response I received back today:

“Great job – each review is well written and insightful. Thanks for adding photos too. Another 2 reviews please!”

I don’t have two more pets to review, though I may have another option and I asked them about this, but I am happy that they thought enough of my work to want more.

I hope to get more jobs from Fiverr in the future but if none come my way, I am glad that these jobs were so well received especially since they involved helping people choose what kind of pet they would like to adopt.
