I took yesterday and Tuesday off. Monday is a holiday (President’s Day), so I have a five day weekend. Awesome. I wrote an article while waiting for my car at the dealership and started writing another one when I went to the library. I’d love to spend my days writing, but that’s not bringing in the bacon.
Well, neither is my current job. I’ve applied to another non-profit, but my friend suggested (upon further thinking) that it should have a cover page with it. I’ll get to it in a moment.
I’ve also picked up a book A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. I mean, I downloaded it from my local library. I’d rather have a physical book in my hands. I can’t judge how far along I am in the book, but I do love it. It may be one of those rare books that I buy for myself. Reading it on my phone or my laptop doesn’t exactly feel real, you know?
Anyway, I’ve been trying to get back to a publishing schedule, but I haven’t had the energy actually to do it. I still maintain that it’s the lack of direct sunlight. The days are finally starting to get longer, but currently, there’s a polar vortex sitting on top of us which makes going for a walk near impossible.
Also, people are jerks and don’t shovel their sidewalks.
Go ahead, look it up. I’ll wait.
Anyway, I’m working on that second article – because I care more about articles for the Parachute blog than I do about the content writing that I do. They are interesting and I get to research topics that I wouldn’t normally be exposed to but one pays more than the other, and it gives me a byline.
I’m all about the byline.
And the money.
I’m all for the byline and the money.
There, I said it.
There are other things going on in my life, but really, it’s not my drama to share. And I don’t want to share it anyway.
Back to writing. Hope y’all are having a wonderful Saturday and I hope it isn’t too cold.
