I haven’t done a lot of fiction writing in the past few months but I have two small projects going right now. One is a stupid little college girl thing that I add to about once a week or so, one or two lines at a time. The other is a gothic-type story, written like a children’s chapter book but written for teens or adults. I’m going to illustrate that one too, even though my drawing skills aren’t what they used to be.
I submitted my newest article into myUsearch for review. I did a lot of work on it and I was happy when I got it finished. That one should be published on July 2nd. As for my next article, it’s not due until the 9th but I’ll probably have to do quite a bit more work on it before I can send it in. So, that one might be a challenge to write and research.
But you know me. I do like a challenge.

Well, Mookychick got back to me quite quickly. They liked my article and said it will be published next Wednesday.

Well, the interview I did with Amanda Palmer several months ago for my old website has been posted on Mookychick. Tra la la! It’s pretty cool, seeing my bio information at the bottom of an article that I did.
If you could see me right now, you’d see that I’m beaming.

Listening To: Alina Simone – Day Glow Avenue
I emailed the editors at Mookychick this morning about an article idea. They got back to me right away- they want me! Plus, I told them about that interview I did with Amanda Palmer for Jill Pushed Jack and they said they would publish it this Wednesday! They’re also interested in the interview I did with Florida tattoo artist Deana Lippens. Good stuff!
I’m glad that the work I did on Jill Pushed Jack isn’t going to waste. I’m sure some of the articles won’t ever see the light of day again but what I can get published elsewhere, I’ll be happy with.
I’m not going to unveil the article I’m writing for Mookychick just yet. I’ll just wait until it’s published and then post the link. I should likely work on that and send it in tomorrow, as tomorrow is my day off. I haven’t heard from the myUsearch people in a couple days so I’m guessing I won’t need to work on any articles there for a few days. I just sent one in late last week, so I’m fine there.
I’m quite excited about this. It’s not a paying gig- but that’s not the point. Published is published. Plus, the site is amazing. I can’t believe I hadn’t stumbled on it before yesterday.
I fully intend on having one of the most impressive résumés in my Journalism class when I start in September. I think being in a room of writers might spark the competitiveness in me. Actually, maybe that competitiveness is already awake, since I don’t even know any of my classmates yet and I already want to be appear better than them. Does that make me ambitious or obnoxious?
