Although I will be off from this temp job for the next two weeks, I will be BUSY. I have several chapters to complete this week, plus I need to type up a couple of book proposals as well as finish the Easter Play. It all seems overwhelming to think about it, but I'm going to tackle it, one task at a time. And I forgot about doing the invitations to the Women's Conference, as well as printing out the tickets.

I am so excited about it all though. I have my first conference call with my agent this week. Y'all I'm really moving forward with my career. It's a good feeling and I wish I could bottle it up and sell it. Instead I will make a mental note of it and refer to it during times of distress.

I got more good news this week. The anthology that me and my friends are working on is getting serious consideration. Thus far I haven't seen anything like it, so I hope we are the firsts to put it out.

I also have two things that will appear in anthologies where the money will go towards helping improve literacy among children.

Last week I got a magazine in the mail where one of my short stories will appear in the May issue. This month has been filled with blessings. Praise God.

I made a list of goals/aspirations on January 1st. I'm on target with some and others I need to get busy working on.
When it comes to my freelance work, my goal is to sell a few articles/poems/short stories and thus far I'm on target...2 in the last 2 months is good in my book.
In January, I launched a 10-week online novel series--UnAuthorized. I wanted to try something different and quite frankly I'm glad I did. I've had fun writing it and who knows where this story may lead. Rachel and Michael may be around for awhile:) I might call it the Un-series.
I was excited to sign this contract. I wanted to shout to the world -- somebody else finally believes in this vision of mine...but they will soon see for right now, I'm just content and being patient. I'm going to write my butt off and do whatever it takes to make it work out. Success is the only option.
I was fortunate to get an assignment to write about my home city--after writing it, I was like "wow" this place really does have a lot to offer. Funny how you can live in a place half your life and not realize the hidden treasures that only visitors see. I would love to write more articles like that though on places I've visited. I would love to get a job for a travel company and go to exotic places and come back and write brochures, etc...Okay back to reality...I look forward to where I can live a good life solely from writing--novels; scripts; just because.
