The turmoil in my life continues, but at least I have good news. The past week has been productive as writing, I managed to write an article about the SkyScrapper Technique, suggested by my mentor for my apprenticeship. Even though there was a miscommunication, and I wrote the article about the examples he sent to me, and not on web design as he wanted, I increased my ability of time management when it comes to writing. The research part took me a little longer than what I was expecting because I’m not familiar with SEO techniques. Well, I’m now, after reading so much about, I feel like a pro.
I continued to apply for different writing jobs on Indeed and got an offer, one for a magazine that is launching in February, so for now, we will start writing articles and publishing. It’s not paid, and I’m OK with that. I will be writing about Pop Culture, I still have to send the editor my writing samples and write five articles about subjects he suggested. I’m happy and overwhelmed at the same time. Overwhelmed, because after crying out loud for weeks, the universe lined up my energy and I started focusing on the good, myself and my ability to walk by myself. Happy because if this project works out, I will be working with something I always wanted. Writing about movies, TV, and music and some pretty cool. Lord help me, I can manage this during this move down to Texas. And while I wait for my second green card to be approved. It’s been two years that I applied. I’m still on the running to get America’s Next Citizenship.
This week also, I found my way around the Writer’s Work app, it turned out to be fun and effective. I started writing a different article, but I’m not ready to publish anything yet.
I’m insecure or drained from all the expectations, or its lack of focus because I have a lot going on right now. Every time I sat down to write, I want to pack for my move to Austin, TX and clean the house. I read on twitter, on the Writing Community, that this is common among the other writers, and if, please let me know in the comments how does this works for you, and how do you fix it the distractions? Right now I have some piano songs blasting inside my ears, with noise-canceling earbuds. Much better than Anime as white noise.
My goal for next week is to finish the articles before my trip. It will take me about 6 days on the road down to Texas, we are stopping and checking some cities on the way. I’m too old to drive 14 hours straight. Or even 6 to be honest. Being honest I don’t drive, my husband will take the wheel.
For this week, this is all the progress I have done. Got some cool writing to do, finish the article about web design and try to keep the focus! I found this prompt on Pinterest and I hope it makes sense to you, as it made for me. That is last week summarized
