It’s been a few months since I opened my Fiverr account. I am now getting a small but steady stream of work for my ghostwriting gig.
In the last month, I’ve gotten into negotiations with a guy who wants me to help produce a webcomic for his non-profit.
Another client is hiring me to write a series of comics for a merchandise-driven storyline.
One particularly ambitious gentleman has hired me to adapt his book into graphic novel format.
With luck, business with will continue to flow in. It seems like it will be a good idea to attend comic conventions and other such events, where I will hand out my business card and wait for leads to come in.
This is especially exciting for me, as it means I have essentially “broken in” to comics. That is to say, somebody is hiring me to write comics. It is my hope to direct my income from this gig to helping to produce my own comics.
Now that’s going to be pretty sweet.
A quick update, loyal readers!
I’ve recently added another service under the Freelancing page of this blog: Civics tutoring.
My civics tutoring gig on Fiverr will allow me to teach you or your child about civics and American government.
The teaching of civics is a woefully neglected, malnourished discipline in this country’s public schools.
But fear not, gentle reader! I can help you or your child learn as much as I can teach about the finer points of the American Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and related subjects.
If you go to Fiverr and look at the listing, you will find that I offer three packages: Learner, Student, and Scholar.
The Learner package consists of one 30-minute lesson.
The Student package consists of a 1-hour lesson with an accompanying homework assignment.
The Scholar package provides five 30-minute lessons for the price of four, in addition to homework assignments and a dedicated syllabus.
If you want to learn more about American Civics, have a child who needs the instruction, or know someone else who fits these categories, then I’m your man!

A wise man once said, “Experience is a hard teacher. It gives the test first and then teaches the lesson.”
Following this principle, I now know that in the future, I must read the fine print. As a general rule, you should read everything. Just in case.
Case in point, I recently opened a new page on my blog, dedicated to my Freelancing ventures via Fiverr.com.
It’s a fun little website, where I can sell my services to others and get some extra cash.
But unfortunately, my first real investment in the platform resulted in a Fiverr Fail.
To cut a long story short, I purchased on Fiverr a beautiful video explaining my service as a ghostwriter for comics, meant to service artists who can’t write.
Unfortunately, the Fiverr team did not approve my video, as it contained the web address for this blog, in violation of Fiverr protocol.
But it wasn’t a total loss. I may have spent forty bucks on a video I can’t use on Fiverr, but I can use it here.
I do hope you all enjoy this lovely video, created by a Mr. “Artwong.”
