Follow-up Friday

I missed the boat on last week’s Follow-up Friday due to pulling an all-nighter on Thursday and using the remaining time after I woke up on Friday to prepare for the arrival of houseguests. You could say I finally cleared the “follow-up” list on putting the house in order, however.

This week, however, I’m back at it, pursuing the following opportunities:

  • Applying for a temporary position at my local library, overseeing the library’s Teen Program
  • Sending my head-hopping article off to Writers’ Journal, which expressed initial interest after I queried the editor. This is not a guaranteed sell, but it’s one more step in the right direction
  • Mulling over ideas for a short story to submit to Glimmer Train’s biannual Family Matters contest

    Good luck on the library position! That sounds like it would be a really fun job. MNSU has a very large children/teen collection, and I’ve been using it to revisit some of my childhood favorites. I’m thinking I may enjoy reference the most of all the library positions I’ve tried, in spite of being an introvert. It’s good to see at least some libraries are expanding their teen programs!

    • I’ve got an interview for the position tomorrow! There’s actually a Library Director position open at that same library, and I thought about you. I didn’t apply for it because it sounds a little more administrative than I’d like, and I really like the freelance work I’m doing now, too.
