I hope everyone had a very, merry Christmas! My day was filled with lots of love, laughter, crazies, and family. And I loved every single second of it!
My one and only Christmas wish was to find a job! And here we are just 2 days after Christmas and I have to admit, I'm well on my way to feeling like I have one. For the past two months I have been really focused on "becoming a writer." I hate that expression so much. "Being a writer" - what does that mean anyway? Well, for me it means actually making a realistic income getting paid to write for publication. And today I have a story running on the Motley Fool - Putting Stock in Politics, new content up on Swing State Voter (what I wrote for today was not that significant, but you should check out what I wrote on Saturday!), and my column is running on Meridian Magazine -Why There are More Singles Today Than Before. And if time allows (after I get back from working at the mall), I will have new material for a delicious and inexpensive recipe at Cutting Back and Going Green by the end of the day.
I'm getting published in various places and starting to make an income with writing. This is all very exciting for me! But until checks start getting cut and money rolls its way right into my mailbox, I get to go fill in a shift for someone else at the mall. Nothing like putting that college degree, 13 years of professional experience, and all those published writing credits to good use like ringing a register all day for minimum wage!
