I discovered Patch through my husband, Adam “Mr. Man” Townsend. He is the San Clemente editor. Fortunately for both of us, I submit my copy and report to his boss.
If you’re interested in freelance writing work, Patch is still hiring. Contributing to Patch just might be the passion project you’ve been looking for. (And this one you can actually get paid for!)
Even if you’re not interested in working for Patch, visit your local Patch page often! Get involved in your community, and do your part to make your hometown a better place to live.
Last week, I interviewed one of the owners of The Cellar, one of my favorite spots in San Clemente. It felt so comforting to be conducting an interview; I was back in my element. I realized I hadn’t done a single freelance interview all year! I also realized that I serendipitously completed another one of my goals for 2010: Secure a new steady freelance gig.
So stay tuned for more of my work to appear on San Clemente Patch!
Turkey Trot Update
If you follow me on Twitter, you saw how excited I was to finally run the Dana Point 10K Turkey Trot. (I’ve been trying to run this race for the last four years, and every year something prevents me from running.)
Well once again, my best efforts have been thwarted.
This time, the culprit is a sinus infection/bronchitis.
I went to the doctor yesterday and am on a slow recovery. No exercise for me for at least one week, doctor’s orders.
Mr. Man still plans to run (if he doesn’t catch my illness), so at least I get to go cheer for him.
And don’t worry if you’re not up for a 10K, they have a 5K as well. Remember, all proceeds from the Turkey Trot go to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County: “Run so others can eat!”
Think about how great it will feel to completely indulge on Thanksgiving and not feel the least bit guilty!
Regardless of whether you make it to the Turkey Trot, here’s wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!
