Things I've been doing and not telling you about obsessively:
I started writing in August of last year. I'm at the point where I need to start shopping my manuscript out to agents and publishers. Its kind of intimidating to have actually gotten this far, but I wrote a complete book.
Actually Ive written more than one! I have two complete manuscripts, and expect to finish a third one in the next few weeks.
In November I joined and completed the 50 thousand word challenge that is NaNoWriMo.
I've continued to market and sell my jewelry. Sales and my marketing are helping to improve online sales, but I still need to find a day job.
The never ending story that is the on going job hunt since I earned that second masters in distance education. I have started taking on more and more freelance design, and have even expanded my job search to include design again (my first degree. first career). Im only including it because of how much work is actually involved in filling out online job application after job application.
Most recently I've started to create coloring pages. My first two are available on Etsy
I need to get more hands on with the creating, and drawing has been really cathartic that way.
Thanks for checking in!
