What an emotional week! One that I, to be honest, never thought I would be experiencing at my age, yet a situation has come into my family and it is my hope, that after next week, I am able to figure out and share. However, things remain positive, but as a writer, I find that I can hardly write a single word when my noggin is filled with too many thoughts. I enjoy the most, when my writing flows out of me like a river through a canyon.
Today, I am excited to report that the March / April issue of the S.E. Illinois Family Living Magazine is now out and my first article for the magazine is in print!
The layout was wonderful and I want to thank Laneal Evans for allowing me to right for the publication and being so generous with the opportunity. To see your work in publication is always fascinating, when someone approaches me on the street and said that they loved my story or enjoyed my article, I often beam with happiness because another person, who doesn’t have to read any article, took the time to read mine and show such support.
My daughter, Ruby, is absolutely ecstatic about being in the magazine as part of the article itself. She has informed me that she will be going to school in the morning with a handful of issues for the teachers and will be a celebrity for a day. I enjoy making children excited about reading and giving them an opportunity to shine in their own light. All too often a child who could take on the world, simply needs that one moment, one single solitary second to shine and gain the confidence to set forth, onto their own course to victory!
Every newspaper and every magazine article is like a constant breath of fresh air and instance that I become excited all over again for this path I have chosen!
As for Marky, Slash & Levy, Bk1 remains at Witte Books where it is being edited by owner Michelle Witte. I look for her to contact me in April with the edit. I can only imagine what ‘red’ marks will be posted in between the double spacing. It will be a time consuming venture but the rewrite will make the story of M,S&L even better!
Well, it is time for my daughter to sleep and it can be a process when her dad is right next door with the light on. I wish you a a good night and a wonderful day tomorrow and hope that you Live With Passion!
