Perhaps I should make a disclaimer right now that my summer may involve frequent and extensive hiatuses from this blog. I live in a state where summer is short, and in a city where it is even shorter, and I’m taking opportunities to enjoy it whenever and wherever I can. I am still writing and working when I can, though, and to prove it, here’s what’s current in my writing/working world:
- The Catholic blog where I write celebrated its 1-year-anniversary on May 30. I’ll be writing an article about the blog for the Call to Action newsletter, which is due on June 19. The blog’s one-year anniversary also commemorates a year of me successfully completing my goal to write more often for “a real audience.”
- I’m contemplating pursuing a position as an online writing teacher for homeschoolers.
- When I can, I’m helping out with my sister’s pony ring/petting zoo business. No, it’s not a writing/editing gig, but it’s a paid gig nonetheless, which is nothing to scoff at!
- I’ve recently discovered another content-writing site, Helium.com. It looks promising, and even promises a deposit if you write your first article for them within a week of registering. Unfortunately, I had too much going on to jump on that offer.
And . . . I’m camping, camping, camping. Not always good for the writing, but definitely good for the soul. And what’s good for the soul is probably good for the writing in the long run.
