Two of Five W2s have arrived, the rest should be here this week, right? Right?? I really want to get taxes taken care of, so I know where things stand. I don’t trust unemployment to have not messed us up. I have info to download from three different banks, but I don’t know that any of them amount to much. Not until next year anyway, when we get hit for the liquidation of Ameriprise, though we had him hold some of that back in preparation. I don’t like waiting for paperwork to arrive.  I want to do it now.

I have a few stories still out right now, too. Two are passed the “query if you haven’t heard by…” dates, but with the holidays I’ll wait a little longer before I do.

Things over at Bookup are moving along. We’re actually setting up a membership site now, and it’s going to be SO pretty. And there will be working forums and a helpdesk that actually gets answered. Mike’s working on getting a new version of the product out as well, that will be really cool when it’s ready.

Barnes & Noble is having some major managerial shifting, so things are a little up in the air, there. I’m sitting at three days/15 hours a week right now. I don’t know if that’s going to change, but I don’t see it going up any, that’s for sure.

We had a nice little break in the weather, but we’re back to snow again, now. Pretty snow. 🙂

Things are moving forward, bit by bit. I’m keeping up and waiting for more storms to hit. Hopefully a few with silver linings. Life is good.

Who am I? January 20, 2010

What if I’m not who I thought I was? What if everything is different? What if I’m not meant to do what I always thought I was? Where do I go from here?

I find myself wondering about my purpose. I find myself wondering about the phrase “Writers Write” because I don’t really write any more. I mean, I don’t really write stories any more. I write about my life. I write in blogs and journals. I post flash fiction pieces on my website, but they’re not really stories, they’re just snippets that slipped out onto paper during the summer. I submit stories, but they’re old stories and they only garner rejection. I am tired of trying to polish them.

Job. Career. Passion. Purpose. What am I here to do?

New Year. New You. Who am I?

Where are we now? January 12, 2010

It’s almost halfway through January already. I was quite productive today. I’ve paid taxes, settled our liquidation of Ameriprise investments, paid bills, balanced budget, checked on drug prices, submitted two stories, and updated all relevant records, filled out insurance paperwork, and this is my second blog post.

I’ll be attending a convention this weekend here in Columbus. Our Ghost of Honor is Amelia Earhart, so among the usual fare, will be paper airplanes and tiki decorations. I plan to relax, eat plenty and enjoy myself.

Infection cleared up, thank you antibiotics. And thank you, Kroger for making them free. Appetite coming back. All is well.
