The Story

Okey, Dokey. Some of you who are my facebook friends and/or follow me through twitter saw that I’ve been published on the Yahoo Associated Content Network in the last two days. For those of you who didn’t know, well I was published on the Yahoo Associated Content Network the last two days. 🙂

In all seriousness, many of you were surprised (including my own family) because I didn’t really tell anyone I had an interest in this or that I had anything in the works. If you think about it, though, you’ll remember I did mention back in December that I was trying to get started writing my book. I asked you guys for ideas of genres, but no one replied. 😦

Weellll…here’s the thing. Sitting down and writing a book is just not as easy as it sounds. I’ve spent my lifetime writing little ditty’s here and there. Just ask my sister. I devoted an entire book on all of her annoyances back in my elementary school days. I illustrated it myself and everything….curly hair and all. I like to take the book out only when we have large family gatherings and I can embarrass her to the fullest extent. Isn’t that what sister’s are for?

My point is that I have stacks of outlines for books and stories I want to write, stacks of poems, and stacks of journals. This blog has served as a writing outlet for me for several years now. I enjoy  documenting my life, but I also love doing it because it gets all that stuff out of my head. You know, stuff I used to hand write in journals…

So, one day I was reading a magazine and it had a little blurb about the Yahoo Associated Content Network. A place for writers and aspiring writers to submit their work. You can accept assignments and write until your heart’s content. I thought this would be a perfect place for me to start an online portfolio, find my niche, and then go with it. Eventually I’ll have to write my book. I mean, I really have very few line items on my bucket list.

Suzie’s Bucket List
Get Married
Have a Family
Own a Home
Write a Book
Go to Spain
Go to Australia

See what I mean? I’m running out of items to complete. The book will have to be done soon.

So, here I am submitting content until my heart’s content. Because they don’t accept everything you submit, I didn’t say anything cause I wanted to wait until they accepted something of mine. Well, so far I’m 2 for 2 and now I’m spilling the beans.

You can go to my Contributor Profile to follow or subscribe to my articles here.

If you want emails every time I publish an item, you can send me a message with your name and email address, and I will add you my automatic email notice list.

Don’t forget to check out my articles. I get “clout” for how many hits I get to each page. Please, please, please comment, “like,” “share,” or “retweet.” I’d love to get some exposure. I need all the practice and feedback I can get! Thanks to all of you who have already sent me supportive messages!
