Vacation and Edits

Sooooo...I spent the past week on vacation. Did I have an exciting trip planned to an exotic locale where pool boys serve me drinks with colorful umbrellas?

Alas, no.

However, what I did get to do was indulge in some seriously needed R&R - which included sleeping late, watching tv, reading until my eyes bugged out, writing, and the best part - taking care of edits for my Wild Rose Press Release, Through Hell and High Water.

I've been uber-excited to work with Fran at TWRP. She's awesome, and has made my story shine like I never thought it could. I'm so happy we work well together. It makes me want to write more stories, just so she can edit them! Now all we need is cover art, which should be any time. Be assured, as soon as I get the go ahead, I will plaster that baby all over every blog, profile, author page I have on this world wide web.

Until then, it's on to the next project.

A Change Is Gonna Come

Well, one of the things I struggle with most in my life is time management.

I know. Big shocker, there.

Balancing a disabled husband, full time job, and fledgling writing career with some kind of regular life escapes me quite often.

And so, I have made a big decision. I am giving up my full time job and going to part time. That way, I can have more time to devote to writing, blogging, and promotion.

Is this the smartest thing for me to do in the current economy? Possibly not. Am I crazy? Most definitely.

The thing is, I'm at a point in my life where I know I need to make a change. A REALLY big change. We're only on this rock for just a short while, and need to make the most of it. Continuing on the path I've been on for the last 11 years just wasn't working for me anymore.

So at the end of September, I will join the ranks of part time. I will still look for another job, but hopefully, I'll be able to get enough writing done so that I won't need it. All I can do is try.

Wish me luck!
