Life is full of quirks.
Change is inevitable, and the irony of it all is that the only thing that doesn't change is change! And this time I don't mean menopause.
God closed a door when I received a rejection notice from the syndicate. But that doesn't mean I'm giving up. I just need to find a new window! And since last week, I have found many.
Let's just call these ideas 'Windows of Opportunity', or 'Whoa' for short- like 'Whoa, Dude! That's totally awesome!' For the record, any window of opportunity should be considered awesome. Totally.
Window Number One- Books. I could focus entirely on books. Women's Lit, fantasy, children's stories, cookbooks, How-to's and craft books. I have enough notes to write several of each at the moment!
Window Number Two- Self Syndication. Since the syndicate didn't work out, I can do it myself with a lot of elbow grease. I can also sell articles to magazines. Family humor isn't a high commodity (oddly enough) but information is. I'm full of a lot of things, and information is one of them!
Window Number Three- Blogging Website. Using my blog as a springboard, I can sell products and services. Not too sure about this one, but I have no problem endorsing things I use myself- that's one thing i won't compromise! For instance, You'll never see me endorsing diet pills or spray for jock itch. But I would definitely have ads for M&M's! Just a few ads that are self-picked, mind you. I hate going to a family site and seeing ads flash from something family friendly to a half-naked woman selling lingerie!
As for the services, I'm working on something that I used to do for friends and family that was really fun- but I won't tell you what it is just yet! Let's just say I used to have the online title of SillyPoet!
Lots to think and pray about, and new skills to learn. Who said life slows down after forty? It's more like a downhill run!
