As I sit here writing this weeks post, I am anxious.
Each day at work, I am anxious.
I do not want to miss out on a fantastic opportunity that was presented to me.
I was so excited and now the anxiety has set in and I am unsure what to do about it. I know most of it is me, I was on such a high and I want to stay there, but I feel myself falling ever so slight, not because anything has taken away any of the excitement except for myself.
Now that I have you some what confused, I will explain.
Almost 2 weeks ago, I wrote a post about my dream coming true and I was asked to be a writer for an online magazine. I am still so super excited about it.
The part that is causing me a bit an anxiety is that I emailed them my headshot, bios and signed guidelines Monday night. I have not heard anything back yet and I have not been included on their contributor page. I am not too worry as I had until mid July to get all that into them. But when ever I do something this big, this important and I don’t get a response fairly quickly that my email was at least received, my anxiety gets going a little.
I guess you could say that part of it is built on fear. But I have the email that states they want me and that they wanted the information by no later than mid July.
So I sent all the required things way before the requested deadline. Maybe they are busy, maybe they have to rely on a certain person to update the website. All these I understand and get, but I am still a like anxious as I wait for all of this to unfold.
Luckily the next few days are going to be pretty busy for me, so maybe something will happen then.
Isn’t there something about a watched pot never boils.
Maybe a watched email and website never get returned and updated.
So tonight I bid you adieu as I try hard not to keep checking the website for an update with my information – as my phone will let me know when and if emails come in.
PS – My good friend, Audrey Herron with Audrey Herron Photography, website below, did my headshots and I love them so much that I am sucking it up and posting one or two of them on the about me page so go take a looky.
I can not thank her enough for taking the time out of her busy schedule to fit me in so that I would have a great headshot to submit for the start of my writing career. This is a step in the direction I want to go and I am going to try and let this adventure take me down the path of a writing career.
Now remember this momma is no beauty queen, I do have a nice butt though – it’s my best feature. LOL.
But with hair and makeup I do clean up nice. Hmm, gives me an idea for another blog – at some point, a photo-shoot I did a few years ago. Ohh. Stay tuned for that blog. 😉
