Thanks Somerset Studio Gallery



I went to the book store today and flipped through the Sommerset Studio Gallery (Summer 2007) and finally...finally on page 180-I saw my picture. Yay~ I was so pleased. I don't think the man checking out magazines beside me at Barnes and Nobles understood my little squeal of excitement. But, I don't know him so it does not matter. Oh, thank you Lord. That is what I wanted. I just wanted to be published this year. Remember when I wrote my goals for this year and that was one thing I was shooting for? I have been published two times this year. So, I met my goals. I will have to go back and see what else I set for goals because it seems to me that this was the most important or highest priority. So, I did it. What's next?
I'm hoping to get an article published. I know, I'm not really a great writer. That is what my sister, Rhea, is for. Well, other than the obvious sisterly relationship and friendship...she is my editor. She will know how to make what I am trying to say look good. She is my life-long editor. She edits my resume and anything else I deem too important to just send along with all my imperfections.
I've been working on an article that I hope will get published in one of the magazines I love. I won't tell you about the subject so I don't jinx myself. I have written the rough draft-and I need to send it to Rhea-Rhea (sister) for editing and feedback.
So, all in all, it was a great day. Just seeing my picture in Sommerset Studio Gallery alone was enough to keep me happy for quite a while!

Oh my goodness--I'm even further in awe of you! Like you, I intend to be published one day--just maybe not this year, lol. Reading your blog, I'd say give yourself a wee bit of credit, you done wrote it really good-like!! xo ~Stacey

I'll tell you what I do, but it's seriously un-fun stuff! I do data entry for a direct marketing firm in our city--whenever you fill out something such as subscriptions, rebates, adding to mailing lists (ie JoAnn Fabrics), they have to go somewhere to be keyed. The pay is great if you type quickly but....my check isn't reliable. I never know what it'll end up being from payday to payday. If you still think it sounds 'all that', lol, look in your phonebook for direct marketing firms and see if they have a home operations department! xo

PS--yes I got your very nice email...and you're quite welcome!
