The other day I went to a local restaurant where the people know me as a regular. As I paid for my meal the cashier asked me, “Hey, so what do you do for a living anyway?” And instead of proudly proclaiming, “I, sir, am I writer! A wordsmith, a stringer of sentences, a paragon of paragraphs!” I sort of blanked. I chuckled to myself and eventually told the person, “I am actually a writer.” As if I couldn’t believe it myself.
With a new year upon us I am laying out new goals to aim for by the end of 2017. Yet, in the first few days of the new year my plans have already taken extremely unexpected turns. All good turns, mind you, which involve more writing. But unexpected just the same.
I don’t even know where to start with this one. I guess I’ll just jump in and blow through it all.
You see that picture right there? That is a picture of a learned and experienced doctor enjoying vacation in the Dominican Republic WHILE READING MY BOOK.
Take it all in people, because that picture right there made my heart sprout wings and fly away with joy. It was incredibly nice of Hector, my uncle of unequalled awesomeness, to send it to me. I can’t tell you how cool it is to have people not only read my story, but tell me how much they enjoyed it and that they can’t wait for more. So much excitement! Seeing this was definitely a boost to my week. Which was nice, because it was one heck of a busy week.
This has been a good week. A grand week, I’d say. Lots of fun happenings going on in the world of Victor, and I’m pretty excited to share some of them with you. Like…
A new week full of possibilities is upon us, and I for one shall not squander the chance to make it a meaningful one that will enhance and strengthen all the resulting ones after it. What do I mean by that? Allow me to tell you…
You know what sucks? Having a lifelong chronic pain illness. You know what doesn’t suck? All these amazing updates that I’m about to throw in your face! Hiya!
So, I’ve been a little under the weather lately(boy, is that an understatement), and haven’t been able to keep my site up to date with all the things that have been happening with my writing career. But that stops now! First and foremost, around this time next week you should be able to find me on gameskinny.com as a content contributor, writing articles and funny youtube videos about all the games I’m in love with currently. I was lucky enough to be accepted as an intern for gameskinny and take part in a JTP. The hope after the internship is that the staff at gameskinny will realize how rare and valuable a person like me is and offer me a paying gig. Fingers crossed, people. And if not, at least I got to intern at a gaming/entertainment website for a bit, and perhaps that will open up another door in the future.
