I’m hired!

Whe–

Wha–

Wow.

Yesterday, I submitted my 4th post for review to the Hometown Pasadena publisher/author/boss-woman Colleen Bates. She responded, approving of the piece (“lovely job.”), and indicated that she wanted to speak with me about a “steady freelance gig.”

Heck, yeah!

After swapping emails, I can now scribe in the annals of Kat Ward that this is my first official WRITING job.

I AM BEING PAID TO WRITE!

Yee-ha & hoo!

Between physically holding Lori’s workbook Where Are You Stuck? and seeing my “Editor” credit; experiencing Kevin Bertazzon’s ISMS and being asked to help edit his next espisode; and beginning to write blurbs for the Hometown Pasadena website and within submitting 4 posts, being hired!–this has been the best week in like a decade!

Hallelujah and thank you, Baby Jesus!
