Say what!?!?

Do you want to know what I have realised?

That when I am out in public, listening to my iPod, the random and multiple thoughts that I have are often not kept in my head. I find myself muttering out loud, not realising what I am doing. The music in my ears fills all I can hear. I get quirky looks from the people around me, and as realisation sinks in, my expression changes to that "oh crap" kind of look. Then I smile like a goof in an attempt to redeem myself as a sane person, as a person who does not usually talk to herself like that in public.

But no....I think maybe they think I'm crazy.

And next...the world!

I felt a little like Carrie did when she finally got her book. Excitement pulsed through me, and I squealed at my desk. I couldn't believe it had happened!!

It was less than a month ago that I had decided to make a serious move about my love of writing. I thought to myself...."Self, you should become a freelance writer." So I answered, "Okey doke, smoke. I'll do that."

I put together a few pieces, sent them out.....and got a raving response!!!! I couldn't believe it! Sweet maria!! My silly little piece about the day I killed a fish while fishing is going to be published! Yippy!!

Soooo.....away I go! Freelance writer extraordinaire!

I'll keep you posted ;)
