Glad as I am to be back from my grand trip to Wisconsin, I am also now suffering from some lower back issues. Not sure how I managed to accomplish that but looks like I will be out of action for the next few days. Not taking on any new projects at this time but have some older ones to submit so I am taking time off from the blog for now. Seeya shortly!
Not many folks share the same enthusiasm for the first day of the week as I do. I know that. It has been repeatedly pointed out to me but someone's gotta be happy about Monday, you know? Sacrifices have to be made for the larger good :) This week is going to be super fabulous is what I tell myself every Monday morning. But seriously, this week is super fabulous - so much that you might not hear from me all week long! I have a feature article to submit (that is a lot of targeted words to type apart from the random words I type otherwise!), more website content proofreading to do for a corporate client (cha-ching cha-ching) and about six different events to check out during the week (I can see all the story ideas and pitches and queries automatically writing themselves out!). That apart, I was able to put in some time reading a few books on writing and being a freelancer (reviews of which will be shared at a later time), writing some more of my book and working some more on my website (like on my blog post right now) and chasing down some checks (I take my money seriously). All in all, productive as a precocious little piggy - did I just term that? I might have read it somewhere, not sure right now, but that's a question for another day. Hi-ho, hi-ho, its off to work I go!
No, really, Thank God Its Saturday! I am almost done with the education article I was working on so looks like submission is on track. Well into the website content project and it takes a. lot. of. time. but it keeps me focussed so that is good. Meanwhile, have just been assigned a feature article in an entertainment industry publication local to the area so that was a pleasant surprise. Hopefully I do a good job and we like each other and this works out good for us all in the long run. Hope your weekend is doubly awesomer than mine :)
Hope you had a great long weekend, I definitely did. Stayed in mostly to finish working on edits for a book on education and begin working on an article on education. Am I the only one seeing a theme here? I also begin this week on a new proofreading exercise for a client migrating content from an old site to a new one so that should take up most of my time. Its always nice to have new clients. There is hope!
Only my second article here but excited...hope you will read and share your thoughts on the original post. Thanks!
Not sure how this happened, its a great problem to have but I am going to have to work extra hard to meet my deadlines this week. On my plate - an article for a magazine about a local business owner, edits on a book on social etiquette and another on education, an article on education for a new magazine I'm writing for (which I hope will bring in consistent future work), and a training conference call for a proofreading project I will be doing in a few days. I see a lot of phone calls and a lot of typing in the works. What are you working on?
I am a huge fan of Ikea - most furniture and decor products in my apartment are from there, and when I run out of ideas for brunch the cafe there is always a good choice. They do some great work with local nonprofits as well so was happy to check out one of their fundraising events for AskMissA. Read it here!
Not sure I ever shared this little piece I wrote about what school means to me for the back to school issue of one of the magazine's I edit for. Read on!
Read my latest on Buckhaven Lifestyle just out. Its about a new company called Tvachia. And they work with folks back in India which makes this article all the more special for me. Check it out here.
If yes, then I want to talk to you! I am in the process of writing a book myself and I know for a fact that it's no joke. I am trying to spotlight a few authors who have recently published work in any genre. Print or electronic is fine. The idea is to share with others your story of how you went about writing your book, your choices and decisions, publishing it, the whole nine yards. Be ready to share a lot of information so other up and coming authors can learn from your mistakes and thank you for sharing your wisdom. I am currently looking for authors from Georgia but you could be from anywhere really. Remember to send me a link to your site, and if you'd like, feel free to send me a copy of your book for a review on this site as well.
