Even if you don’t follow football at all, you were probably aware that this past weekend was the Super Bowl weekend. It’s watched by about 100 million people every year, making it one of the most American events of the year. Friends and families gather to eat a lot of good food, spend time together, and enjoy a special show.
I’m a big football fan myself, so I definitely made time to watch the game and it was spectacular. I didn’t have a dog in the fight so to speak, so I was just happy to see a good game no matter who won. Plus the halftime show was an incredible performance from some of the biggest hip-hop and R&B stars from the 90’s and 00’s: Eminem, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
Now it’s a long wait for the next season of football, when (hopefully) at long last the Bears will have figured out how to develop an elite quarterback!
In writing news, I’m still working on the second Creed book, and it’s up to 46,000 words. I’m also considering bringing back a character from the first book for this next journey!
And speaking of the first book, I had originally planned to self-publish it this month after the release of the Uncharted movie, but there’s a publisher opening up submissions soon that I want to try first. I submitted His Name Was Zach to them last year, the whole series, and they actually requested full manuscripts! While they ended up passing on Zach and Abby, it’s the farthest I’ve gotten in my quest to be published, so I want to try again with Creed before finally self-publishing.
Hopefully this is the one that finally catches enough interest for someone else to publish for me, so fingers crossed!
