So, it’s not a step toward publishing the novel, but I applied for a blogger position at a family oriented website and so far, they say that I meet their criteria!
Their next round of hiring begins March 1, and they will contact me then for the interview process, and if I do well, then I start a paid training period. I am hopeful that this goes well, because I enjoy writing and blogging so much. I spend so much time on my personal blog, writing for a website, with a specific purpose to each article would be a welcome change!
So, wish me luck!
