Seize the moment!

We spent the day at the Clean Stream annual picnic at Meramec State Park. Their members (some are our friends) are very dedicated to the never-ending job of cleaning trash and debris out of local streams and rivers. There were canoe races, poling demonstrations, inner tubing for the kids and much more.

Nope! I didn't do any of those things. I was a spectator. Bill photographed the river events. As a freelance writer, I see an article about to take shape.

If you sit back and wait for writer call outs, you could be missing an opportunity. Freelance writers should be on the lookout for stories of interest to write about. They present themselves all of the time; seize the moment.
