Informative topics, reviews and my personal reflections.
|Boy, have I been remiss in adding blog entries; and I apologize to all of you who clicked on my blog. But, I've been busy writing articles and actually getting paid for them. I'll admit the money is never going to make me rich, but it's exciting to see my name in print.
When I sold my first article, the editor liked my writing and requested that I copyedit some other articles, about 300 of them. The copyediting progressed into copywriting more articles, book reviews, and website reviews for the company's online magazine. If you have the time, please visit my website and take a look at the articles I've written (http://sharonleahill.squarespace.com/). (I no longer have this website.)
Writing keeps me busy, but it can get boring being couped up all day. I found that I was eating more (I put on 15 pounds) and smoking more (a pack a day). So, on January 1st, I made the decision to quit smoking and quit snacking. So far, I haven't had a single puff (yea!), but I haven't lost a single pound. I attribute it to sitting in front of the computer all day (to which you retort: "You need to get up and do some exercise," and I agree). But really, it was actually easier to quit smoking, and I'm having a real hard time understanding why. If nicotine is so addictive, why was I able to quit cold turkey after smoking for 10 years? Whatever the reason, I'm just glad I did it.
