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

My favorite thing about the holiday season is creating new memories with my family. I haven’t had the chance to do that for a couple of years, so this year was extra special. I met some of the new additions to the extended family. I reconnected with some old friends and bonded with my nephews over, japenese anime, Jake the Pirate and Angry Bird Star Wars Edition Board Game.
I hope you had a great holiday full of new beginnings.
Thanks to Amanda for another star. I appreciate it so much. I know we are done with 2012, but it’s nice to still be recognized.
