Have You Read my Published Articles?

When I'm not feeding my face or watching TV with my husband, I'm usually writing. Whether it's writing poetry just for my own enjoyment or drafting an article for a client, I love to write. The world of freelancing can be tough, especially since I have to actually go out and acquire the work I wish to do each day. It doesn't just fall into my lap. The other aspect of being a freelancer is that in order to have clout in the writing world, I need to develop a fairly extensive set of what are called "clippings." Clippings are articles I've written for a variety of sources. The more people read them the more my reputation as a writer grows.

Below is a short list of clippings I've written over the past year or so about life with cystic fibrosis. Some are very similar to what you'll find on my other blog, but not entirely. I encourage you to educate yourself about CF as a disease and how it affects an the lifestyle of individuals and families.

As always if you have any questions about CF or would like to know more about how I cope with it, please don't hesitate to send me an email.

You can find all of my published articles here: Associated Content Producer, Lauren Beyenhof
and here: Helium Content Producer, Lauren Beyenhof

Please leave comments either on the articles themselves or here back at the blog. Happy reading!
