Productive Saturday!!

So today was sort of productive. I got up at 8:30 thanks in most part to my dog having to go out. Then I made breakfast (microwaved two waffles and ate a banana). Most of my day was spent mapping out a rough draft for my literary analysis paper that is due tomorrow. Its still a work in progress. I chose to free write this papers so I need to clean it up cite a ton of stuff. You know how it is, the life of a student. I swear I could be a career student. I love learning so much. I also love the structure that school brings to my life. I guess I am a routine person. I am a Virgo afterall.

In other news next week I start the short story challenge. I am very excited to do this. This is will be the second time I have participated. The first time I was way under experienced than I am now. I’m not saying I’m going to win, being that my grammar still sucks, but I have some pretty nifty ideas.

I also start an eight week long weight related challenge at work. I am so not looking forward to this. When it comes to challenges I tend to start out strong but then my energy fizzles out by the 2nd or 3rd week. Anyone else have this experience? I guess I have to keep it interesting.

I was thinking of having guest bloggers any idea of what questions I should ask?

Well I guess that’s all for now. Live long and prosperous.

Hello!!

This is my 2nd attempt at posting a blog here. Wish me luck!! I think I have it now.

Let me begin by introducing myself. I’m Mickey! Nice to meet you! I’m from the Midwest and like several thousand, even million people I too am an aspiring author.

What sets me apart from other writers is that I try to be realistic about my wrting ablity. I know I am not a great writer, I feel that I do have origninal ideas. I”m sure everyone else feels that way too. That being said. I have two Bachelors: Sociology and Psychology and I work as a Billing agent at a Nationwide water company. They weren’t lying when they said you don’t need a college education to get a decent job. But none the less I have it and I am currently going to school to get my third degree in English. I am hoping to be accepted to grad school later this year to pursue my MA. Keep your fingers crossed.

I know it’s been said before, but I have always wanted to be a writer. Not one of those serious, over analytical writer (sorry if you fall into this category, I respect your work), but just one of those fun loving and down to earth writers, like what I picture Shel Silverstein was like. BTW if you haven’t read him, you should! That being said I have read so much more than I have written. As I child I was consumed by the written word and would listen to books on tape, (I have a visual impartment). It has recently been corrected as much as it can be, but I still find enjoyment in listening versus reading. So then I began reading books a passion shared by my otder sister. However she is into more the fantasy world and me into the commercial and young adult fiction. This love of reading followed me to college but I was too afraid at that time to pursue a career in writing so I settled on studying people and how the interact with eachother. Sine most books deal with relationships, I figured I might as well get a grip on that first. It worked. I am now able to prove what I learned through my writing.

Now I haven’t been pusblished. I am hoping too someday soon. I have been working on a triology for the last three, no fivie years and it’s finally undergoing it’s last leg of editing. I can’t wait till it’s finished. I have my cover picked out and permission to use it now all I need is representation. I am actively seeking an agent right now. So we will see how that pans out. If it doesn’t then I will self-publish my work. So that being said I am in the process of gathering all sorts of information about self-publishing. Let me know if you know of any good sites!!
