Money in the mail is a lovely thing...it just might be buying me some happiness. A check in the mail is especially fun when it is a surprise! It looks like I am going to be in a fourth issue of The Secret Place Devotional Magazine, according to the check that I found in my mailbox yesterday.
The odd bit about this news is that I do not remember sending the piece in, even though the title does sound like my writing. I poured over my beautifully organized-color-coded freelance Excel spreadsheet and it is not there. The letter accompanying the check includes the title of the submission but not the whole devotion. I can't even find it in my computer files. So weird! I have to wait for the magazine issue to arrive to see what I wrote. Ha!
I am constantly submitting things and I THOUGHT that I was being very careful and organized so I could keep track of all my rejections, acceptances and payments. Potential Clients: Please know that I will never lose your work and I love a deadline, so just ignore this post OK?
My email also announced yesterday that nearly $100 has been added to my paypal account from my new client for the giggle inducing "Udder" subject. Yay me! To be clear; the content I sent them was NOT causing giggles, it was serious information that cattle-people need when ordering farm supplies. The chuckles came from the seemingly never-ending puns that the word udder can produce from my friends. If you wish to add to the udder nonsense yourself, go here and leave it in the comments. :)
|My 4th issue will arrive in the fall of 2013.|
