The Fabulous Adventures of Astera: Writer/Actress for Hire

Meet Astera (aka: me), a star in her own mind. Our plucky little heroine has embarked on not one but two difficult, low-paying career paths: writing and acting. Witness the menial jobs! The unreasonable demands! The quirky friends and family! And the glimmer of success just ahead! Through it all, Astera maintains her core beliefs: 1) She is destined to be fabulous 2) Everything is more fun with a cocktail.

On The Upswing

In my last post, I wrote that my life was something of a roller-coaster ride, and I felt like I'd been hurtling downhill for awhile. But now, I'm headed back for the heights.

On Monday, I started a new job as a copywriter for a small marketing company. So far, I really like it. I work with intelligent people, and we have interesting clients. I even have an office with a door! In addition, I completed a small freelance assignment for a local publication, and I have a couple of new tutoring clients. And, my novel is still in play. (Well, at least I haven't received a rejection letter yet!) I've gone from being discouraged to being encouraged, just in time for the holidays. And I am so grateful to have gainful employment, especially since unemployment is so widespread.

Mr. Pink and I will be headed up to the wine country for Christmas, where I hope that we'll encounter merriment and good cheer, although family drama is sure to rear its head. All in all, though, it looks like the new year will be bringing us many blessings. And who knows? We might even have a very special addition in 2009...stay tuned.
