It seems that my work as a freelance nurse writer is beginning to bear increasing fruit. Digital Doorway has been in existence for five years now, and it has been a slow but steady process of becoming published in a variety of venues and media.
I have been an "Expert Blogger" on BlackDoctor for a year, and I have now been asked to provide a weekly editorial article on that site beginning later this month. This will allow me to use my skills as a writer and nurse to reach a slightly wider audience on a regular basis. I'm grateful to the editors at BlackDoctor for this opportunity.
Just this week, I completed an article on "Disaster Relief Nursing" for the Southern California-based Working Nurse. The article will appear on the Working Nurse website and in their print version, which reaches 100,000 nurses at home and at work. With the ongoing situation in Haiti, it couldn't be a better time for nurses to learn more about disaster relief as a specialty.
In terms of books, two stories of mine will be appearing in a new collection entitled "Nurses on the Run" which is scheduled for publication by Dog Ear Publishing later this year.
Drumming up work as a writer is not always easy, but my level of satisfaction is currently high with so much good news to report. I will continue to pursue further opportunities, and fully appreciate the trust and support I have received from so many people along the way.
