Here it is, the official day-before-vacation post, with 2 very big GUESS WHATS.
1. GUESS WHAT?
You know that WIP-FROM-HELL I've been bellyaching about? The one that I've been working on for NINE MONTHS NOW?
I just finished it!
As in, FINISHED!
As in, I just typed the word "FIN" in 96-point font at the end of the document. Because THAT'S HOW GOOD IT FELT. It was definitely a 96-point moment.
I can't thank you enough for your ongoing support. YOU ARE ALL AMAZING. I honestly don't think I could have done it without the collective cheering and encouragement from the writing community.
2. GUESS WHAT AGAIN?
Remember that job interview you all cheered me through, and how I didn't get the job? And remember how the gal who interviewed me said she was so impressed with me that she was recommending me for another position, if it ever became available?
IT JUST BECAME AVAILABLE.
The CEO emailed me yesterday and wants to do a phone interview. Tiny hitch--I'm leaving early in the morning for vacation! Which I told him. But I also told him I'd be happy to squeeze it in later today, if he wants. As of this writing, I haven't heard back yet.
HOLY BAD TIMING, BATMAN!
But I'm super excited about this. It fell out of the heavens at my feet when I was least expecting it. So we'll see how it goes! It's not a done deal by any stretch, but it's a terribly exciting opportunity!
Oh, and have I mentioned that IT'S A WRITING POSITION? As in, online content. DUDES! That's what I DO, right?
I'm pretty stinkin' excited over here.
I mean, okay. I'd be EVEN MORE EXCITED if I were announcing a book deal right now. But you know what? I've stopped waiting for that to happen. And don't you know, that's when life starts to happen.
Bring on the life!
Bring on the vacation!
Love you, and I'll update you on all the things when I get back after the Fourth.
Be good! Write words! And see you soon.
