Good News!

I finally got a nibble on my calls about adjunct teaching. A private college in nearby Clinton, MS  called me yesterday and said they possibly would have some openings for fall but definitely for spring.  So I am jumping through all the hoops: filing out an application, requesting transcripts, and getting my CV in their hands.  One final step for the transcripts and everything should be complete.

I also wrote something really neat last night.  There was a contest for baseball writing.  I love baseball.  And I’ve wanted to do something on a particular baseball player that made a stop at a Mississippi independent team back in 1998.  I’ve wanted to write this story for almost 20 years.  And I was all ready to do my research and write this compelling story–and I saw the deadline was that night.  SO instead I went minimalist.  I wrote a nonfiction poem about this story under 200 words that got all the facts in and just shipped it off right after I finished it.  So we will see what they think.

I feel so much better than I did yesterday.  I hope this job really does work out. The department head sounded very encouraging.  So maybe it will.
