Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

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

themix_logoMotivated 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?

  1. I’m with you! I got in after the interview but have not seen a prompt that works yet. I have been happy to see that they are not all over the top prompts (though some are :o) – just none that work for me yet. Thanks so much for sharing my interview!
