April – that was the last time that I wrote a piece for this site. That is both sad and not surprising. I get all jazzed to start a new project and then I go crazy the first couple months getting it setup and kicked off. Usually, I will continue to write for a few months after that on a semi-consistent basis, but, eventually and inevitably, I trail off. And that appears to be what happened here.
Now, however, I am getting my shit back together and working on the universe of sites that exist under the hippiegrrl.com umbrella. I’ve been working remotely (did I mention that we moved to Alabama – yeah – more on that in a future post) for the same software company that I was writing about in April. I have also been looking for a library job in Huntsville, but so far no bites on my postings. So – I have decided to take another tack. Since I still have the remote, part-time work, I feel like this is the best time to start working more on my writing career.
There – I said it – my WRITING CAREER. Writing is the one thing that I have always wanted to do. It is the one thing that I come back to time and time again. I need to find a way to make it my main source of income and all will be right with the world. Well – most things will be right. I will, at least, be happy. And that is all I can really hope for. So – here we go – time to take a few big leaps and see what happens. I may or may not keep this space open, depending on the path I choose to follow with my writing. I am pretty sure that I will always need a space to vent about work, in general, so I don’t see this space going away anytime soon. But, just in case, here are a few other spaces you can read my writing, for now:
In the meantime, here is a song that has been giving me life this month:
