Well put, Natacha.
Sorry for the whacked out post yesterday. It's been a rough couple of months.
HOWEVER. I resolve to turn things around. I have a plan.
But first, some good news:
a) last night, seriously on a whim, I submitted an essay to thoughtcatalog.com. Literally, as I hit "submit," I realized I had sent in the wrong draft. After a stream of obscenities that chased Lucy out of the room, I decided to call it a night before I further raped my online presence. I made a note on my progress board to send it in again in 2 months, per the website's failed submission recommendation, and went to bed.
At 7 AM I got an email from one of the editor's saying she accepted the piece, and it'll be posted on or before Mother's Day. A submission to one of my favorite heavy volume contributor's website and a positive response within 7 hours? SHIT YEAH.
2. I did a little job hunting today and got positive responses back to everything I applied for, including a writing gig. Neat!
Productive days of victory are basically uplifting.
After all, we all deserve victory. Right, Winston?
Hopefully, this is a prelude of things to come.
