My Weekly Update – Good Week

Highlights

I received my first paycheck as a writer this week.  I ghost wrote a blog post for a beauty blog and that’s all that I am liberty to say about it.  It pretty exciting to be a paid writer and I have another assignment due this week. Super proud of myself. I’m not going to strike it rich anytime soon, but it’s satisfying being able to earn money doing what you love.

How did you feel when you sold your first book, first, poem, first article? 

Award

My new blog friend and book club host M.L. Swift gave me the The Leibster Award.  Thanks so much M.L.

I received some insightful responses and can’t wait to share them with you.  See the schedule below.

  1. Hey, congrats on your first -paid- writing gig…that’s awesome and I hope you get many more 🙂

    Looking forward to your guest posts and I really like your organization as to what’s coming up…nice work.

  2. Yey – how exciting. I haven’t been paid for an article, but I did have two poems and a short story published, which is still the cause of the odd tummy butterfly. 😀 Every book sale is a buzz too. I’m new to this and can’t see that ever getting old.

    Great selection of guests and love your organisation. Oh for a little of that! 🙂 X
