I followed the traditional path. I went to high school graduated then went to college. Then something happened in college. I didn't like my major. I didn't know what to do then I went in freefall. I left college and just bumbled around. Yet, I always wanted my degree. It became a life goal. A friend told me about SNHU and I looked at it and applied. Here I am today.
With my school work ending next week, now it is time to think about what I want to do now. I will have a lot more free time, at least until November. I am going to apply for the Master's program at SNHU so I can be a professor at the school. I am not applying for grad school until September, which gives me several months to work on other things.
- My poetry calendar. It is time to select photos, write poems and create the calendar. Projected release is late September or October. Of course, earlier would be better
- Revise and edit, Solider Girl for Kindle. This novella is about a girl named Bryndle who survives an apocalyptic event. No planned release date as of yet
- Finish writing Love Always, Seaside Heights. I started this story awhile ago, it is heading for a novella path. Maybe if I am motivated, I will release it to Kindle this year as well
- Work on my 300 Poems One Book board on Pintrest. I have been slacking on this for 2 months now. I want to get back to making a new poem every other day.
- Prepare two poetry chapbooks for Kindle. One is already done. I am thinking of taking poems from this blog to make another called Blopo (a clever combination of blog poems). I am still not sure if this is a good idea, what the hell do I do with the poems on here? Delete them? I don't know.
- Go back to freelancing, even part time.
- Marketing and more marketing for my writing and my jewelry
- Send more work out to publishers. I also have been slacking on this. I am going to start with one a week and move it up to 2 a week.
And that's about it. That is a lot. I know it is. But here's the thing, I want to carve out my own path in life. And this is how I want to do it. Yeah, I know I am not going to be rich overnight or famous, but I got to work at it. I have be dedicated to my art (in all forms) and consistently work at it.
Till next time....
