Okay, so LESLIE rocks!

Okay, so LESLIE rocks, yes, we know. Or at least I know. If YOU don’t know, GO READ HER, like now, and you will know!

I love that I finally have ALL OF HER PAGES in ONE PLACE for easy navigation. I love that she is forever sending me links, hook ups and places to submit my ‘writing’. Love that. Love her.

I have to tell you, I have never been a good speller, or grammatically correct EVER… and you take away CUSSING for ‘effect’ and um, well, I suck? I don’t know?

Yet again, Leslie has sent me a company for me to submit some sample writing as a way to get me going in the direction of blogging with a purpose. I have never written anything in the style I am supposed to write for the submission I am making. And um, er, smash head until I bleed… I can bitch. I can moan. I can spew on the Internet when I have had a bad day, or take pictures of horrendous traffic. But WRITE like a grown up? Follow rules? That shit was hard people! HARD!

To my own surprise, I did manage to write a small piece 30 Rock (a TV show) and a little piece on Jennifer Aniston. Once I completed my ‘writing samples’ and whipped up an about me, I submitted MY application for a freelance writing position! I will now sit with my fingers crossed while waiting to hear back if I was accepted.

I have learned as of today, maybe? I should have finished that English class I was taking in college. Nonetheless, I will go fourth. I will submit. I may fail a jillion times. But, I will keep submitting and applying for freelance writing ops. In the meantime I will practice. I will read, study, memorize and execute, all I can learn from William Strunk Jr., The Elements of Style and toad-ily hijack a great vocabulary from BFD.

But first, I think I need to clean it up in here? Maybe? I will start delivering a more professional approach? …..Nah yo… this is where I cuss, and spit and act all grimy! I have to do it somewhere. I think I like publicly humiliating myself? Besides taking pictures of my father, and having taken on the roll of family archivist brings me tons of joy!

BUT, from now on, I will be keeping ‘my bad days’ and scary self-pity posts, to myself. I had an old link meleah’s drama, which has since been deleted for a few reasons.

One, I really don’t need to let the entire Internet know when I am in an emotional crises. Or the exact nature of that crisis, until after I have processed my feelings when I can write it about it with a funny twist, without sounding like a suicide note!

Two, when I do make submissions for freelance ops, I usually include the link to this site. I wouldn’t want them to read some of these entries currently on display for the whole world to read.

I am going to go through all of the entries on here. I will decide what I will keep up, and what to take down. You may notice missing / deleted posts, or posts that have been ALTERED, because, if I am using this website as a point of reference for potential writing jobs, some of these entries HAVE TO GO!

I have also deleted all of the other unnecessary links I had here, and no longer need, use, or like. And, I did post chapter ONE and ONLY chapter ONE of the BOOK, since that was also a listed website as a reference for my writing.

Here’s to happy freelance writing applications, and happier posts in this site for ya’ll!

    Never censor yourself for a job. Leave the posts dear. The freelance sites are aware this is your personal blog, no need to censor THIS blog. Just use the guidelines I gave you for THEIR blogs. Ya dig?
