Day 3: Writing Career

Today was a work day.

I meant to get up at 8:30 so I could go to the gym. I woke up at 9:20. I had no time for the gym. I ended up getting a shower and working on the illustrations I need to finish by Sunday Night. Then I worked with all my awesome friends at our min wage job. So that sucked up a lot of writing time. But do not be discouraged! Today I did some writing. (Other than the blog… which is me currently writing.)

I worked on a novel for NanoWriMo called Wolf Girls. It’s a fun coming of age story about werewolves…and murder. It needs a subplot in the rewrite but so far so good on the main story line. Anyhow, I finished that story while doing nano and Book 2. Well today I wrote almost 600 words in that story. That’s right, even after 8.5 hrs of work, oversleeping and the completion of the first of three illustrations I’m working on: I had time to write.

Feeling accomplished.

Also I opened a photobucket account. I am going to get into the Cracked.com Photoplasty contests. I want one of those under my belt and then I want to come up with a 5 Things Article… So step 1 complete.

Today was a good day. Even got some compliments on my book The Angry Rabbit.

Day 2 Writing Career….

Today I spent an awful lot of time not writing. There was laundry and Christmas shopping and lunch with Mom… Then there was art that had to be done since I am also an illustrator. I did manage to read a few articles on writing and marketing but unfortunately I didn’t get any actual writing done…well except for this! 🙂

I have started researching markets and I remembered that I used to have an account at Helium. Helium pays writers by the view or assignment. I had made some little money off of the site before when my career was starting. So I went back there and was shocked to see the entire interface had become something new. They assure me it’s better. But I have no idea how to work the dang thing.

I did update my writer’s information. I did not update my credentials. I will be doing so soon. As soon as I figure out a way to add ‘write a lot of Buffy fiction in the 90’s’ in a way that looks and sounds professional. Since it is late, I am now going to do some more research and hope for better results tomorrow.
