Mission Accomplished (Sort Of)
You’ll all be supremely relieved to know that I did complete that little personal essay that I mentioned last week. (Equally good news: I managed to navigate the new website/submission system.) The only little glitch remaining is that the photo I sent isn’t quite right, spec-wise. So that’s a task that remains.
In the Mix
Motivated by this interview on the Beyond Your Blog site, I recently re-submitted an application to write for Hearst’s “The Mix.” (Yes, I applied once before–and was not accepted.)
But this week brought good news: admission to the freelancer pool. So now I’m receiving the daily prompts/assignments. Nothing has quite clicked for me yet–nothing has sparked any writing, let alone led to a byline. But, it’s early yet. We’ll see.
At the Day Job
Yesterday was a big day for all of us at Fig Tree Books: the official publication date for Ben Nadler’s The Sea Beach Line. Check out my celebratory post for the day over on the Fig Tree blog, if you please. We’ll all appreciate it!
What’s new with all of you?
