House Improvements, Writing and Job Hunting

What I Accomplished for the Week Ending 3/11/18

Ok, it’s been a while since I posted about what I accomplished for the week, so I thought it was time to write a post. This week has actually been pretty good, I’m starting to do a few things that I hope will help increase my odds of getting more paid writing work and/or finding another work from home phone job. Here’s what I accomplished this week:

Did some work on the house

Kevin has been doing a lot of work on trying to get the lawn and the house in general looking good. He’s spent a lot of time tilling the soil, and yesterday we went to a nursery in a neighboring town to get some trees — we purchased a few crape myrtles and a dogwood tree. They don’t look like much of anything right now, so I’m not going to post pictures of them, but they’ll look beautiful when they bloom — the crape myrtles will have red flowers on them, and the dogwood will have white flowers on it.

Submitted a pitch to a website.

I submitted my first pitch to a website — Vox. I submitted a pitch for an article I thought would be appropriate for their “First Person” section. I hope to hear back from them soon, I’ll be sure to post on here when I do.

Wrote a rough draft of the above-mentioned article to be posted here on Medium.

The Vox website says they accept previously published work, so I thought I’d try it out here first — before I do though, I’m getting some feedback on it from some other writers I know.

Did some writing for other sites.

I also did some writing on Crowd Content — I wrote an article about the basics of applying for a mortgage loan — something I know a bit more about now that I’ve gone through the process of applying for and being approved for my first mortgage.

Looked for work from home phone customer service jobs.

I also continued my search for work from home phone customer service jobs, because I’m contemplating quitting my current job. Of course, I don’t want to quit until I have another work from home job so I’ll hang onto it for as long as I can.

That’s what I accomplished this week — planning to keep working on all of the above, plus going to start a new workout plan this week. Also have a dentist appointment AND a physical tomorrow — that should be fun, by the time I finish both it will have been a long time since I ate anything. Everyone have a great week!

I started writing in elementary school and never stopped. I enjoy sharing stories about my hard-learned life lessons and writing advice.
