Lots of updates

A lot has happened since my last post.

1. We bought a new house. We're actually downsizing from a single family home to a townhome. People think it's weird that a couple in their 30s are downsizing, but we're very happy with our decision. For one thing, it's a smaller mortgage, so when my writing takes off, it'll be easier for me to leave the cube. And another, it doesn't require the annoying maintenance our single did, such as mowing the grass. It still has lots of space. I have an office to write in and hubby will be using one of the spare bedrooms to paint in.

2. We're getting a new puppy. We're calling her Holly Jane. She was born 2 weeks ago and will be coming home in 4 weeks time. YAY!

3. I got a freelance writing gig. I'm writing ad copy for small businesses in a local newsletter. I have to interview the client about their business and then write it up. I completed my first one as a test last week. The editor loved it and I'll be given some more clients soon. I think it's gonna be fun and of course won't hurt the resume.

4.My screenplay is finished and I'm really thrilled with it. I feel it's the best script I've written so far. It's now time to market it.

I will be back with a new post soon.
