So what’s going on with me this month?
Well my six year blogiversary was 11 days ago. Wow, I’ve been blogging for six years. I wonder if I should stop by Corner Bakery this morning for their chocolate mini bundt cake to celebrate?
So what else is going on with me this month?
After two decades of doing my hair the same way. At least two of those years I wore box braids during college, I’ve decided to do something a little different. I got faux locs!
Another thing going on with me this month is that today I’m saying goodbye to 35 year old me. And tomorrow I’ll be saying hello to 36 year ol-
N-nope, nope can’t do it, as my youngest son would say.
Another thing going on with me this month, is that I’ve finally heard back from Write Bloody Publishing 2019 Contest yesterday. Alas it was a rejection. But they also wrote me to consider sending them another poetry submission again. During their next submission period. Or to their neighborly press like Copper Canyon Press and University of Hell Press. Which I’ll definitely will. As well as submit again to Feminine Collect.
I’d also set up profiles on Fiverr.com, Guru.com and Elance.com offering my services as a proofreader and light copyediting services. All the while, I’m wondering if it’ll a successful accomplishment.
And do you remember this IWSG question, ‘In terms of your writing career, where do you see yourself five years from now, and what’s your plan to get there?’ Well, I’m three years in. And I’m starting to feel a teeny weeny bit panicky. 2019 is halfway over. Which means I have the rest of the year to finish rewriting and editing, both Foreseen and Triplicity manuscript. And have it polished and ready to query and publish by 2021. Dare I jinx myself and don’t believe I’ll make it?
What about you, are you where you see yourself in five years? Made any changes in your life recently? Have any celebrations to celebrate?
