Well fellow Rainers, it's been way too long since I've been on! Missing my AR family right about now. Here's the latest on what's been up.
Moved from Baltimore --although staging biz had picked up, finding FT employment was taking a long time, and bills need to be paid, right?
Back in hometown, Columbia, SC --home sweet home or sort of; I love Columbia, but it's not exactly a "thriving" metropolis
Backstory -- four years prior I had some success meeting with publishers/agents/et cetera regarding my writing (the more serious, nonblog stuff LOL); didn't pursue because honestly I got the shakes and wasn't sure it was the right time...a stint of steady corporate employment keep me paid but far from my writing roots
Now -- after some thought and prayer, the vision is beginning to materialize and I think it's time I put aside my marketing/graphic design/corporate bag (exclusively) and get back on the literary track
Plans -- attending a writing conference end of October and preparing material now; if all goes well, I'll be relocating (back) to the city where my novel takes place: LA
How this relates to AR -- LA is a pricey town and I'll need a solid PT to make this dream a reality. Any takers? If you know of anything, I'll send you a link to my portfolio site. I've got a BA, 5 years experience and do a heck of a lot -- from graphic design to technical writing to corporate communications to mixing paint at your local hardware store to waiting tables. Serious. Let the bidding begin.
