It’s totally surreal.
And kind of, well…
But here’s how the whole thing started. Ready?
So, I write this blog. This silly, sassy, sexy…racy little blog. And about 18 months ago, it was nothing but a cathartic outlet for me. A journal of sorts. I got separated, and decided to just tell my story. Well, not really just tell my story. I spilled my guts. I oozed out my every emotion on the keyboard. I poured out my soul for my readers. You get the point.
And I didn’t stop. I kept going, and going and going. I blogged for me. I wrote for me. And I ended up with a gazillon readers. Wowza. No clue how or why, but I did. For some strange reason, people love to follow a good train wreck, right? Kind of like watching a horror movie with your hands in front of your eyes? Ha.
And my blog is just that. It’s a total mess, but heartfelt…and endearing. And I think it’s relatable. We all deal with life’s issues, so I chose to write about mine. And I tell the truth, and sometimes…it can hurt. Well, that’s where this all began…Just me, my blog…and and a whole lot of readers.
Until one day, I got a Facebook chat-message that changed my life. A friend, of a friend, who knew a friend. You know how that goes! And she was a “fan” too. She asked me if we could have a phone conversation about the blog. Which she LOVED. (Awww, thanks, girl!) And discuss a few things. Hmmm. A few “things”? What kinda things? And of course, she was peaking my interest.
But I was skeptical.
She went on to explain that her hubby was an agent in Los Angeles, and he too was privy to my stuff. As her texts were coming up on my chat-box, I was googling her, and her “so-called” agent hubby as fast as I could. And he was legit! And she was legit!
OMG I’M GOING TO HOLLYWOOD!
