Trying to Make a Living at What You Love Is Hard

You guessed it. I’m one of those “starving artists” that people talk about sometimes. I’m embarrassed to admit just how much I’ve invested in my writing career, and how little payoff I’ve seen for it, so far. Fact is, I’m completely broke. I live with my parents. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a complete mooch. I’m a substitute teacher during the school year. I’ve applied to a BUNCH of retail places, but haven’t had a single callback so far. Why did I go to college and get an AS and a BS if nobody was going to hire me after? That’s frustrating. Thousands and thousands of dollars invested in education, and I don’t feel like it gave me a leg up at all. I feel the same way about all the money I’ve poured into my writing career, and with no payoff in sight.

So, now I’m offering up the only skills I have to strangers in the hope that I can somehow dig myself out of this hole of education and dreams. What are those skills? Writing and editing, of course.

Right now, I have an editing service and a campaign for 100% customized romance novels. I will be offering more diverse services later on. My pen is ready, and my hat’s at my feet. Help a writer out?

Rescued: How Adopting Rescues Saved Us

This is a project I’m working on, and it’s very important to me. I am working with several other people to compile a book of our rescue pet stories, and we are going to sell the books to support charities that take care of animals. I plan to open an animal rescue and rehab center some day. This is just one step along the way.

Please check us out in the following places:

A million thanks,

Hi, New Zealand!

Can I Just Be a Writer & Fangirl for a Living?

Seriously. My fandoms are vast and diverse. I don’t have ships; I have an armada. So, probably, you’ll see fandom related t-shirt designs from me a lot. I just wish I could make a living from being a writer and fangirl. One day, guys! Here’s my t-shirt design of the day, though. It’s only available for the next 20 days via Teespring, but you can get it here.

D-Day Anniversary Thanks

Today is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion. I just want to take a few moments to thank the veterans who put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms. I sincerely hope that you know how important, how appreciated, you are. So, to the veterans of the past, present, and future, I say thank you for everything that you are willing to sacrifice for the rest of us.

Love,

Chelsea


More Readers in New Lands

I just get so excited every time I see a new country in the list of where my readers are! So, from now on, every time I see that I’ve got readers in a new country, I’m just going to make a quick post making note of where my new readers are.

Thanks and Much Love,

Chels


Murphy's Law of the Jungle

Murphy’s Law of the Jungle is the other serial I have going on JukePop. It is a comedy/mystery, and I think you’ll find it pretty entertaining. As I said before, or I think I did, I only have one chapter out so far. I am working on chapter 2 now, and plan to release it this weekend. I’ll be honest in saying that MLotJ is loosely based on my family and an experience we had on vacation a few years ago. We’re weird people, and we have very bizarre luck. Also, MLotJ will be the first in a series of books that I’m calling the Murphy Family Mysteries.

I look forward to entertaining you guys some more later on!

Love,

Chels

My Amazon Author Page

I’m so excited that I finally have a real Amazon Author Page! It may be a tad ridiculous, but having it makes me feel more legitimate. Do any other authors out there feel this way about it? In any case, I’ll be sharing the link for those of you who are interested in checking it out.

Thanks for stopping by, guys! I’ve got several ideas bouncing around in my head, so expect a few more posts from me today.

Love,

Hello World, Indeed!

I am so excited to see that I have people all over the world viewing my posts! I just want to take a minute to say THANK YOU! It boggles the mind, really, and I can’t help being agog at my readers’ diversity. So, I’ve decided to post a list of the countries where my blog has been viewed, so far.

  • United States of America
  • Ireland
  • Sweden
  • Belize (Where I’m currently vacationing! Such a GREAT place. LOVE it.)
  • United Kingdom
  • Thailand
  • Philippines
  • Germany
  • Republic of Korea

Thanks again, guys! I’m looking forward to seeing more views from new places. It’s so exciting to connect in this way.


Frost

Having the short attention span that I do, I’ve discovered a WONDERFUL way to release longer works in segments. The website is JukePop, and it is fantastic. I love being able to release chapter-by-chapter. Also, you can earn money depending on where your serial is ranked. (Your ranking is decided by the number of +Votes each chapter of your serial receives.)

My first serial, Frost, was accepted on November 5, 2013. It is YA fantasy, and is now ranked #12 overall.

Please read, comment, and vote when you get the chance! Also, PLEASE let me know if you apply and get accepted. I would love to read, comment, and vote for you, too.


Hello world!

I’m very excited to be here, guys! My piece of flash fiction, “Marlene,” was featured in Flash Fiction Magazine back in April, and I’m ecstatic to have been invited to blog for Flash Fiction Magazine, as well. I just wanted to let you know a bit about what will be going on here. There will, of course, be commentary on writing and short stories. I read often, so there will be a lot of book reviews. I also watch a lot of movies and read comics, so there will be the occasional commentary on those, as well. I also love music and art. Expect commentary on those, as well. I do a lot of traveling as well, so expect travel photos and reviews of the places I have visited, and have yet to visit. I will do my best to keep things well-rounded and interesting.

I will also be releasing updates whenever a new piece of my work becomes available on JukePop or Amazon.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to entertain you a little later on!
