As many of you have known I have been writing for a young women’s magazine almost a year now. This seemed great at first, but gradually has become somewhere I cannot volunteer for anymore. I hope you enjoyed the articles, I did enjoy writing them. But after certain events I get the feeling I am no longer wanted there and truthfully, my heart is just not in it at the moment.
To be fair my grammar and style has not been the best lately for the editors and I am working on that for future writing projects. As well, I found it hard to take criticism as it was most often felt negative. More so, I think you just have to move on from certain situations after awhile because they can bother you a lot if you let them. I go back to my second sentence, I was a volunteer, this was not my job, and I know God intended for me to write for the women’s magazine as long as I did, and for no longer than I was supposed to write for them. I encourage you to keep reading the magazine as it raises some very good points about women in today’s world and the people and issues that effect them.
I endeavour to keep improving my writing skills through courses at the U of A: Creative Writing last winter and Editing this Fall. I am also working my way through my old Writing 300 grammar guide and work book to reaffirm some grammar rules and help prepare me for an entrance exam to Grant Mac in PR sometime in 2014. Also, as of recently, my health has again become a focus as I am having difficulties falling asleep and having difficulties with energy and moods in my daily life. I will continue with my blogs and hopefully find some interesting writing projects in the future.
