Living Out Loud-Weekly Biz. Report

I keep track of my Living Out Loud business each week, by writing a report here. It isn't so much to pat myself on the back, as it is to be accountable for my work, and to praise the Lord for what He has allowed to be accomplished.

This week, you will see my goals first, and the results in all caps after each goal.

1. Write inspirational column for The Paris News and my mailing list.-COMPLETED

2. Write in my blogs daily.-COMPLETED (AN OLD FRIEND FOUND ME THROUGH THE BLOG THIS WEEK.)

3. Read book for book reviews. Write review. Find multiple markets for review, and send out queries or submissions. (If you know of additional paying markets for reviews, please let me know)-FINISHED READING BOOK, AM CURRENTLY WRITING REVIEW, HAVE FOUND SEVERAL MARKETS TO SEND QUERIES TO FOR THIS REVIEW BESIDES TRUETUNES.

4. Gather letters of recommendation for freelance writing business expansion. Put more detailed plans into place.-HAVE COLLECTED TWO MORE LETTERS-MY OLD EDITOR SENT AN EXTRAORDINARY RECOMMENDATION-WRITE ME OFF-LIST IF YOU WANT TO READ IT.

5. Send out at least 3 queries this week.-SENT OUT 4, 2 HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED ON SPECULATION, 1 WAS REJECTED, AND 1 IS PENDING.

Other writing related reports for the week, that were not in the goals:
