Just a little update on what I have been up to. I have been continuing my advancement as a content writer for websites and my own blog. I also have been helping my lovely lady Kathy with her massage business and Kathy C. LMT is taking off like a rocket. I have begun a new phase in my career however that I am exited about. It was Kathy who pointed out that my ultimate dream is to be a full-time author and since that is the case, I should be working towards that too. I took her advice and I am.
I was reminded of a quote from Ray Bradbury that goes something like this, “write a short story a week for a year, it is almost statistically impossible to fail 52 times in a row.” Since I can fit it in to my day I will be writing a story a week and submitting each one at the end of the week to a different publication. My first one went out yesterday and it felt wonderful. It is a little horror story called Monster. It is my take on monsters under the bed.
You see, I love to write and for me it is not really work. It can be hard, and the research part is work, but the writing is playing with words and I can always have more of that. My main genre is fantasy, both horror and the mystical so I will be researching any and all online Journals and magazines that accept submissions. I also have some posted here under the tab writing with wolves writes, if you are curious. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them.
