My last post (nearly two months ago) should have clued everyone in as to why I haven’t updated. Things have improved and I feel energized after my school’s spring break. The bitter cold and snow of this year’s unusually severe winter has finally subsided to the warmth of spring.
To fill you in, I had submitted a piece to the literary publication called Glimmer Train. Unfortunately, I haven’t heard anything yet. I don’t feel that my submitted work was anywhere near my best, but I wanted to submit something. Perhaps I’ll fine tune it and try submitting to a different publication. What they don’t tell you about professionally writing is that you could go months before getting an offer for your work or, more likely, a rejection letter. What to do for money in the meantime?
I’m going to try out a website called odesk. It contains listings for small jobs as simple as creating a Powerpoint presentation for a company to large projects like ghostwriting a novel. It’s something to do until I can improve my creative writing and, hopefully, starting my novel.
