Examining an Examiner

I know I promised cool things this week and, yes, I fully intend to keep those promises; however, they might have to be put on hold for just a bit longer. For those of you who are reading my little Bundle, I apologize! But keep coming back and you efforts will be rewarded ;).

Now, while the specific things I'd hoped to manifest here on this blog (i.e. the "cool" things) have not yet yielded results, I do have a few other fabulous topics to discuss:

First: I am DONE with my final project for my Global Human Rights class...DONE DONE DONE! Now, I just have to wait for our group grade and my individual grade (as of right now it's an A and I have a 4.0...let's hope it sticks!).

Second: I am editing my book...FINALLY. It's a slow process, but I have a new goal for myself: New Years Day. Which leaves me with just under a month to write, edit, print, package and send a beautiful query letter (while I simultaneously edit the actual book because, this I promise, there will be an agent contacting me...I just know it!). Keep your fingers crossed that I will be successful in this endeavour...it will reveal a good deal about my work ethic and whether the fact that I finished my book just before my deadline was true to character...or just an anomaly.

Third: I have a new writing gig: I am officially an Examiner! Examiner.com is a site hosting thousands of writers who post articles pertaining to their particular topic of expertise for their particular area of the country. I am the Christian Perspectives Examiner for Atlanta. My first article, titled "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas", went live last night! Please go "like" it, comment, and generate traffic! The more you read the more I get paid! Please and thank you ;).

Whew...I'm busy. But it's wonderful to be busy. God is good and so is life, my friends.

I'll be back soon, hopefully with presents!

I love reading your posts! The life of self-discipline and setting your own deadlines fasinates me! I admit I envy you as I work the same schedule day to day, but I don't know that I would have the determination to do what you do. Keep it up! :)

Thanks Christy! My full-time job is very much the same schedule every day, which is why I'm working so hard at trying to be a writer! Then I can make my own schedule =). Thanks so much for reading and supporting me!
