Today I was asked to send in my resume for a writing internship. I listed all of the writing I had done, and I felt a warmth inside me.
While checking my publications at the Mighty, I discovered one article that received over 400 likes. This is a milestone, as only a few before mine broke one hundred.
I haven’t told the husband yet as he watches John Oliver on his iPad, as is his morning ritual, but I am quite excited. Maybe one day I’ll be a thousandaire in the likes.
In addition, yesterday I was told by Offbeat Bride that I had two more articles I was going to be published by them. As a longtime fan of the website (seriously… I was thirteen) I can’t wait to say I’ll have three articles with them and be part of their bride tribe.
Then there is, of course, my experimental poetry book, It’s Okay, Magic Happens.
It’s experimental mainly for the fact that it was my coping mechanism for PTSD over 9 years and I only took the good stuff, stuffed it into Scrivener, and wanted to see if I could make a book. I wanted to see if I could learn a new technology. Friends who had read my poetry for years told me to self-publish for about three of the nine years the poems collected static on my computer.
Right now I am working on a bridal book I hope to get traditionally published. Email me for more info.
I am hoping this internship leads me closer to becoming a paid, full-time writer. But I am still blessed even if I don’t get the job.
