On Fridays, this blog tends to spice things up… Hey, by the way – did you see the new “menu” I put up last week. Look it’s right over there on the left….scroll down a little – THERE – you got it!
ANYHOO, so Friday’s I’m spicy – most of you know this. It’s when I tend to write a little more edgy, cutting, satirical in nature. But today I just am flat out of energy to dash out the cayenne pepper.
What I can say is that I have had an amazing day. Two different publisher/editor appointments today; one with Tyndale and then with CBN.com. And I just can’t believe they like my stuff. I’m still in a stun mode – I’m numb – because it just hasn’t sunk in.
On one hand I’m walking about 3 inches off the ground, and on the other hand I know how much work is going to go into getting something ready for those that want to see my stuff. I wish it was as easy as open an email and “just send in what I have” – but after these couple days here, I’ve learned NOTHING is that easy. That is if you want to see any momentum and progress and publications. This is a tricky tight business. I knew it was hard to break in, but now I’m getting a reality check about how it seems nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get in. To get published. And that conferences like this are invaluable. I am lucky, blessed, call it what you will – that I am here.
Okay, that’s the good news – the bad news (cause there always is a flip side right?) is that I am having other options being thrown at me that don’t put writing as the primary way I put my message, my story out to those that have a need to hear about my “Soiled Wings”. BUT, it seems everyone has me pegged as a “natural” for something I’ve never considered. Now, I know you. You are probably expecting me to give you that hot inside scoop about what this could be. Well, I just can’t cause it’s so weird. I’m meeting with someone about this tomorrow… Not that I’m gonna tell you then, but just know that God opens doors when you aren’t expecting a door to open. I staring into an open door…I could use some prayer for clarity (versus excitement).
Now y’all – I just hav’ta tell ya – there are so many southerners here that I’m pickin’ up an accent. I’m just sayin’ y’all – it’s a hoot. I’m one of maybe a half dozen of us Californians. I’m the minority. But I’m very cool with that….y’all.
OH – and to top it off, we are having a “Chuckwagon” BBQ dinner and campfire sing-a-long. Kumbaya anyone…I mean y’all. Thanks for following me, it’s comforting to know you’re checking in with me and your comments area little bit of home. Thank you.
