Listening to every heart
Linda, I guess my excitment preceded the fact that the magazine is only a quarterly...and as Rick Bragg admits, we're "not in a well paid arena..." or words to that affect.
But still... Someone wants me! Your egg nog and my differing breads of various momentum sounds great! Let's make a date!
No, Larry, it can't get better than that...unless you're a very well known author and people are clamoring for your next word! Hugs, my friend, and Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Late, from your wisdom to my heart, are your words. I had no idea of your stage in life, nor all that you've been through but I am so pleased you've shared it with us who ain't you yet. It makes me wonder why in the heck I was giving me my own pity-party in silent desperation....
No, Mys...it's a quarterly, and I'll work from the home front. Good enough for me. You can follow this link to see the sort of magazine I'll be writing for...
They don't want me in Lawrence...they want me here in my adopted state...going out and about...and let's see, if I can get my tax guy in on this, he'll tell me what I can write off re: lunches, etc....
Thank you, Maureen...yes, it will be getting assigned jobs and those that I might pitch to them, "if" I am interested...
won't be much in $$$, but just the fact that it will be fun and a reason to gad about...Wahoo!
nope, 'Deer, they don't do folds, except for sheets of 600 count quality, I'm sure.
But thanks for the smiles!
Kacy, so good to see your name! Hugs to you, and Merry Christmas, sweetie!
MartieSis, from your lips to God's ear...I'm covered now for sure! Love you, Sissie...have a wonderful Christmas!
Sue, thank you so much for your wonderful words. I'm excited to get onto this first project. I just hope that I will be able to share that magazine with all of you if it goes online like their others do. It may take awhile, I'm still learning a lot about the organization!
Christopherson...Yes, dear, I know about what I need to do. It's strange being unemployed after so many decades of employment, when the decision wasn't yours to retire just yet. One keeps waiting for the rug to be pulled out again from underneath their feet...not a good feeling. As I mentioned, I vacillated sending in my resume for this position because I was skittish about not getting it...and then I got it. I've been just that skittish about getting back into my writing on the 2nd and 3rd novels in progress because "what if I'm hired to go back to work?"
I know the what ifs need to be resolved finally...I'm not getting younger. Although, my dear son, you've made me feel younger by your great comment. I'm glad you see what you see your way...that needs to be published...
Ruth, dearheart, I'm lucky to have them!
Margherita, as one of the very first people to order up my first novel, I have to thank YOU for the happies....you've always been one of those folk who keep me going!
Thank you, Denise....I want you and yours to dig out from under the snow [we still have quite a bit on the ground ourselves] so enjoy your white Christmas and smile through all of it - we're survivors!
