Welcome to Cities of the Mind Freelance Writing!

Welcome to Cities of the Mind Freelance Writing!

Connor Rickett’s site for writing.

I’m Connor Rickett, a professional writer. Through some loophole in civilization that I don’t entirely understand, I get to turn words into money–I’d like to look into it, but, frankly, I’m afraid other people might realize how crazy that is, and I’ll have to go back to working in a chemistry lab.

Cities of the Mind began as a personal project, and became a business. It’s been my sole source of income for several years now, and I’m proud to say so. Writing has been a lifelong passion of mine, and I’m almost always grateful that it’s become a job. Not always, mind you: Truth is, whatever your job, some days it feels like a job.

At this point, this site exists as a place for clients to learn more about my services, and a place for me to write about writing for other writers. I’ve learned a lot over the past few years, some of it the hard way, and I like to help other people learn from my mistakes, and benefit from my good ideas.

Of course, if you’d rather just pay me to fix those mistakes for you, I’m more than happy to accommodate you.
