I did it! I wrote all ten articles for Suite 101, five of which I wrote last night after work. I cannot speak to the quality of any of these articles - I may need to go back and edit later - but they're finished and my contract with Suite 101 is renewed for at least another three months.
I do feel a sense of accomplishment finishing all of those articles. I really thought I was just going to say "forget it" and let my contract expire. If not for the suggestions and encouragement from Nathan and Joyce, I probably would have just let it slide.
If you'd like to check out my new articles, see the right hand side of my blog under the green Suite 101 heading. Oh, and feel free to click on any of the ads that are on the same page as my articles - that's how I get paid ;-)
