Not exactly my first roar, but probably the boost I need to get back to writing after the lull I had last week.

As much as I wanted to write last week, I just couldn’t. I was sick, my head was foggy, my brain hurt. I knew that any work I produced during that time would have been tainted and less than my best, so I spent my time doing other things: cleaning the house, researching for a few articles (but not writing them), and sleeping. Now that I’m feeling better, I’ve also found that I need something to kick me into gear again, as I just don’t feel like writing. The first step is always the hardest, and for me, right now that first step is making myself sit down and write a few hundred words, hopefully producing a filler article for Pagewise, Inc.

Lo and behold, I checked my email, and have been awarded the honor of being named the Musicals Correspondent for! Hooray! I’m very excited about this opportunity, and will be looking over more of the details with my husband tonight. From what I’ve heard from a few others who are involved with them, it’s very enjoyable and fulfilling!

Now I’m off to try to write something of substance!


I'm a wife and mommy first, as well as a social media consultant/manager, editor, and writer. I'm also editor of Musical Reviewer and Houston Theatre Blog.

    Hi Pattie! Wow, how’d ya find me here? Just curious. ;o)

    Are you referring to the AIA ( position? If so, it doesn’t have an outright payment, but affiliate links can lead to a decent income. However, AIA is a UK-based version of, started by a few former editors. It is making huge strides, and looks to be a leading site for finding information. I am on several writing networks & boards (which is why I don’t participate often on the old groups much anymore), and this is a highly-recommended opporunity, among others out there. E-mail me (you can go through the AIA site or my website) if you’d like more information. I’ve really been plowing ahead in my writing career — finally! — and it’s wonderful!
