Poetry. Writerly Advice. Memoir. Literary Analysis. Book Reviews. Serious Journalism.
I am sending my poetry manuscript out to presses. I've just received my first rejection on the book! Woo Hoo! I do love rejections. Here are a few places I've sent the book:
This list will grow. Have any ideas?
I don't want good company & good fires & good vibes.
I don't want to talk to you about the heat or the cold.
I don't want to hear about how making time for you would make me happier.
I don't like black roosters or cocks. It's not very funny. It's racist.
I don't think being a proud homophobe is attractive.
I don't want to talk about what we did eight years ago.
I can't just get married because you think you still love me.
Being a freelance writer is strange because I don't have to leave the house, but that doesn't mean I don't like feeling good about what I wear. I shop at ModCloth like my money is never-ending, but I always make sure the pieces last for a VERY long time.
And I always make sure that I get a good deal. Recently, I got 25% off my $100 order! F-yes. Seriously? That makes me so excited. Since I am so excited about my deal, I wanted to share with you what I bought!
Making the decision to become a writer is a tough one because there is a lot of negative stigma out there, but you shouldn't let that stop you. Writers can and do make a living in this world. In fact, I'd argue that writers are in greater need than ever before with the explosion of the Information Age.
Once you've decided to pursue writing, whether you are 18 or 57, you need to tell your family and friends. To help you, I've prepared a few statements that you can use to break the news. Enjoy.
The team I work with at Skinny2Strong nutrition and fitness consulting is so wonderful, and we have just finished our latest fitness and nutrition guide (after sitting on it for six months!).
My team, a combination of wellness coaches, nutritionists, and fitness aficionados have helped me write a book that aims to help people change their lives. It's not a diet and workout book; it's a book that asks folks to get off their asses and embrace an active lifestyle. We ask people to stop using their cars as much as their feet. We ask them to eat right and enjoy the little things in life.
It was so fun to write that I wanted to share it here for anybody who may be interested in taking a look at it. If you are interested in a FREE copy, I'd be happy to provide it in exchange for a review on Amazon. Leave a comment below.
Otherwise, you can snag it on Amazon.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
