Thus far I have found my Tweener piece on nine other sites, a few of them actual newspapers even. I suppose it is silly to be so proud of something as my ramblings about middle-age and peri-menopause being filler on news sites and blogs, but it is something I wrote and that someone thought was good enough to bother offering to the world at large for review.
A year ago I was only daydreaming about something like this and now it is a reality. And I just want more.
The job interview went well. It isn’t inconceivable that I will be offered the position. Regardless, I will turn it down. Not just because of the syndication. I am not a starry eyed girl. I know that this is small time. But seeing my piece up and spread out all over the country has been fulfilling and exciting in a way that this part-time job will never be. I don’t want work like that anymore.
