I do apologize for the late post, I saved it for one reason and one reason only. Then, my reason lost by 35 points. I still love you, Peyton.
Congrats to Bruno Mars. Brilliant Halftime show.
I have a new author Facebook Page, Sydney Aaliyah Michelle, everyone, please like it.
SAM & Associates LLC has been created. I created an entity to run my self publishing empire. I figure if I am going to do this business, I need to treat it like a business. That includes creating a business plan, which I am working on now.
Editpalooza didn’t quite work out of for me because of the lack of feedback, but the Savvy Authors were amazing and I have listen to the Three Pass Editing Webinar and acquired a more systematic plan for self editing my books. This doesn’t eliminate hiring an editor before you publish. I am an staunch believer in if your going to invest in your book, do it with the editing process.
I have attended two of my Creative Writing Workshop and I am really enjoying it. I enjoy talking about writing more than I thought I would. I also read my first short story to the class, it was a character exercise, and everyone loved it. I could get used to that feeling.
I turned Another New Life over to more beta readers and received some positive feedback. I had one person offer some harsh feedback, but once I looked through her tone (:-) tone in writing) and read her notes, it was helpful. I am working on edits, now and have completed 7 our of 37 chapters.
Goals for February:
SAM & Associates LLC – finish business plan.
Writing Workshop – continue participating and creating content for my workshop.
Editing – I gave myself until February 16th to finish edits on Another New Life and then I turn it over to my editor. :-0

Yeah, I’d hoped Manning would get one more Super Bowl.
Jeremy did a great job! (He always does.) Looks like your business is coming together.
Hey let me know when you figure out a business plan. I’m going to do some research on LLC’s in the self publishing world, as I’m just about to file an EIN for mine, so I can get things solidified. Anyway, let me know if you have any good links/info I should check out!
Hey Katie, I’ll email you some of the links I found.
Bruno was awesome! Loved his James Brown moves. And always a treat to hear the Chili Peppers!
Sorry about Denver. I was stoked for the Hawks tho!
Great idea with SAM! It sounds very professional. And good luck with edits! I’m taking a deep editing course this month too so I hope to learn a lot.
I was so happy he did so well. People were ready to bash it, but after, no one could say it wasn’t brilliant.
Go you! As for the game…I still love Peytie-pie, but the actual end result of the game was disappointing.
I’ve been a Pey Pey fan for years. Something about 6’4 quarterbacks with a goofy sexy thing going on.
LOL! A gal pal of mine who was a Die Hard Vols fan got me curious about him back in his college days. Been a fan ever since.
