Catching Up

So I just finished a 24 day challenge by Advocare!! Lost 12 inches and 5 pounds. How awesome is that? I have also beefed up my working out schedule to including the gym. This week I am going to work on implementing Zumba and Yoga into my gym schedule. Today I spend an hour walking on the treadmill and almost burned 500 calories. Now I don’t know about you, but I am one of those unfortunate people that reach a certain point and pour sweat!!! It’s crazy!!

In other news I am getting ready to start my 4th week of class. Yikes!!! It’s another thing that’s getting real. Soon I will be graduated!! With a Master’s!! What will I do then?  I mean….I work in Billing which is nothing I went to college for (psychology and sociology)

I recently finished a book, The Girl on The Train….if you liked Gone Girl you will love this book. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and the characters are relatable. Check it out!! I am going to write a review via goodreads and post a link later. Also I started reading The Martian. It has been made into a movie staring the great Matt Damon. If you read this book he’s perfect for the role. I hope they don’t mess up the writer’s integrity!! We all know how Hollywood can botch a good book!!

I”m excited for the upcoming weeks!! Publishing book, marketing said book, and even just logging in see that one sale will fly me to the moon!!!

What’s going on in your world?


How Social Media is Influencing Our Lives

This is a great video posted in my New Media Publishing class this semester at SNHU. It’s jam packed with information and stats that will blow your mind. I mean some of it’s very concerning that some children don’t even know life before Pcs macs and video games. It’s crazy. It reminds of the show Shameless as well. it shows the alternative side to life without technology. Sure they have television, but the entire family shares a laptop. It’s crazy. Check it out and let me know what you think.


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!!
