269. You never really know who is reading ...

Wednesday, January 25, 2006

Do you ever get one of those emails or phone calls that throw you totally for a loop because it just comes out of nowhere? A little over twenty-four hours I received one of those very emails, and then I received a phone call today that just continued the shocked feeling. I can't say anything really right now, but I can say that if things work out my entertainment writing career could go through the roof and quick.

I think if the email follows through to a solid offer, it might be just as important as the all important call from New York writer's hope for. I'm being cautious though. Even if it doesn't follow through, it is was just exciting to know I'd even be considered for the position I was emailed about.

I see so many positives in my life. My writing is improving, or I can see some chance for real improvement. My new mentor is wonderful and truly supportive. She's pointed out some areas that need work in my writing - some verb issues, passive vs. active and deep point of view. I knew passive vs. active was an issue of mine, and I can never get verbs right to save my life. However, deep point of view is something new to me, and I'm trying to get it set in my mind. Thankfully there is a workshop this week over at divas on this very topic. I printed out today's lesson, and I plan to read through it tomorrow.

Today my mind so hasn't been focused on my fiction. The call through me for a loop, and I had to work to get my web cam working for the next four hours, so I had that ready for whatever was next. I had bought it years ago, and it never worked. I couldn't even find the install CD for it. Luckily, I was able to find the install program and drivers online, and then I was able to find another program to use with the webcam.

I really had planned to write tonight too. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day. Over on my sidebar, you'll find an all new Blog of the Week. This week it is The T Stop. Check that blog out for another woman's perspective on all kinds of things! I hope you're all well. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
