So, I've been kind of quiet about things in my life recently. I didn't want to bore you guys with my trials and tribulations.
But, that's when I remembered that's exactly what I created this blog for.
I needed a place to vent.
2013 was a good year. Yeah, by the end things were going to shit, but I didn't know that at the time.
2014. Not my year.
Y'all know about my publisher biting the dust and that I didn't see 75% (ish) of my royalties. (Not that it was going to be a significant amount.)
I was also told at the end of 2013 that the part-time position I held was going to be expanded. Sounds great. The job had to be reconfigured and I would have to apply for it like everyone else. Still, not so bad. I knew I had all the qualifications. I interviewed over 2 months ago.
I didn't get the job.
Okay, maybe not that bad. :)
I know I'll find something else. Not easy with an 8 yr old getting out of school for the summer in a few days, but I'll see what I can do.
I know I'll find a new publisher. If the Universe is kind.
I know I'll be fine and that this doesn't define me or my life.
It hurts, but what doesn't these days?
So, that's my story. I hope I didn't bore or annoy any of you too much.
Let's end this meeting on a high note!
Here's to having the second half of 2014 be better than the first.
