I’ve just been selected for a freelance job to write articles about cosmetic surgery! I’m really pleased on several levels; firstly because I won the project through Freelancer.com – a site that is usually full of scammers and time-wasters – but this buyer seems very genuine and professional. He wasn’t put off by my insistence on a contract so that’s a very good sign! I’m also intrigued by the subject matter in terms of both the surgical processes and the psychology of the people who choose to have it done. I’ve actually had reconstructive surgery myself – not for cosmetic reasons as such, but to repair my cheek after an unfortunate injury 10 years ago (see Happy New Year!), so it’s a topic quite close to me. I’m looking forward to getting started!
