DAY 8 - JUNE 11, 2009
Today felt pretty unorganized to me, but now that I've made some progress in some areas, I can work towards getting some more results.
I lost a bit of morning time because I had to spend it talking with my phone service to fix my weird phone setup, but now I know a good trick for a quick fix, so that should cut down on any problems in the future. I also found a few exclusive comedy writing jobs to apply for, but I think I'll have greater amounts of success if I approach normal article writing tasks with a humor bent.
My biggest success today involved finishing up the phone calls I needed to make. I'll be signed up for the driving course as soon as I pay the high school, and I'm scheduled for an exit interview with my old college to figure out the loan situation.
I sent out a pitch for a guest post today. It got shot down (with what I suspect is a form letter), but what's important is that I made the commitment to send it to a big blog, and that took some courage. I will be doing that more often.
Today I splurged a bit and bought an ebook about writing for the web from an authority I trust, so a lot of tomorrow will involve using it to develop new tools and strategies. I'll also be posting part two of The Berenstain Bears and the Sinister Smoke Ring on my blog
, so if you're been keeping track, stay tuned!
