Holy geez

First….the award

Wow…I mean I knew I had been working hard, but really I didn't see this coming. I remember reading that Associated Content was going to recognize their top 1000 Content Producers. I just didn't think I would be one of them. I have been writing with them for nearly 2 years now, but I don't write full time. I just do not have the time to promote my work like many of the other CPs, so when I logged onto my account and saw the Top 1000 icon on my page, I just about died. I'm not sure of all the criteria AC used, but I'm pretty sure I would have made the top ranks with out you guys suffering through my articles and blogs. Thanks so much! It is encouraging though. With all the work I've put in over the past few months seems more worth while. There are times were I just feel like giving up this whole writing thing. I mean I guess I could work in education for the rest of my life. Yeah, I make money writing, but it could be years before things really take off. It will be a lot of work. Planning, writing and promoting take time and energy. I won't lie. I have seriously contemplated just giving up. Even a few weeks ago when it seemed like I just couldn't come up with article ideas, and the gigs I was finding required a bigger time commitment or just weren't a good fit, and I could seem to sell a copy of the novel to save my life, I just wanted to give up. I thought maybe I was just wasting my time. However, this past week has brought some real encouragement, and I have found some new opportunities that look promising. The whole award thing is just icing on the cake. Yeah, things will still be hard, and from time to time will suck, but I am hopeful that sometime soon it will all work out. Really the award isn't a huge deal…but encouragement wise it is. It happened at just the right time. I'll probably do a little bit of celebrating tomorrow night…I had already taken Friday off, so I have a little bit of wiggle room with staying out later. Okay…who am I kidding I will probably be you Friday night too if Thursday doesn't work for you. Give me a call if you are interested in hanging out.


 

Second…the music of the moment


 



 


 

Third…The Song of the Moment: Leave Me Alone --- The Veronicas

Picked for: It's catchiness…been stuck in my head for days

I'm getting tired of you pushing me 'round
Dragging me down
Making a sound because you wanna
I guess that's why I like messing with you
Putting you through
A lesson or two, because I'm gonna
Before I go my own way
I just gotta say

Leave me alone
Get out of my face
I'm tired of love
Feeling so misplaced
Time for you to go
'Cause I know I'm better off on my own, oh
Leave me alone

This isn't gonna work
Don't call me on the phone
Because I'm all out of words
I'll face the unknown
Thinking about all the ways that I've grown
Oh, Leave me alone

There was the time I thought you were the one
Having some fun
Getting it done
What an illusion
'Cause you were trying to take control of me
That couldn't be, I need to be free of this confusion
Don't give me a guilt trip, because I'm so over it

Leave me alone
Get out of my face
I'm tired of love
Feeling so misplaced
Time for you to go
'Cause I know I'm better off on my own, oh
Leave me alone

This isn't gonna work
Don't call me on the phone
Because I'm all out of words
I'll face the unknown
Thinking about all the ways that I've grown
Oh, leave me alone

Don't turn around and don't look back
I see right through all your selfless acts

Oh

Leave me alone
Get out of my face
I'm tired of love
Feeling so misplaced
Time for you to go
'Cause I know I'm better off on my own, oh
Leave me alone

This isn't gonna work
Don't call me on the phone
Because I'm all out of words
I'll face the unknown
Thinking about all the ways that I've grown
Oh, leave me alone

If you win your love

I'll feel better on my own

Leave me alone
