I’ve been spending a lot of time on several non-fiction projects. When I opened my novel up last night, I realized I hadn’t written on it since the 10th (at least, that was the last-changed date on the file). I’d kept writing some notes, though, so it’s not like I made no progress. Just very little.
On the other hand, it seems like there’s real interest in the non-fiction, so that could prove a viable combination with fiction in the future.
The longer I get into this year, the more I’m thinking I definitely need a direction change life-wise, at least with regards to the day job. I haven’t figured it out yet, but I need to do so soon.
I’ve just been putting it off because I knew there was this big trip lurking, and I knew it would be life-shifting.
Which it has been.
I need to make a certain amount of money. As a practical matter, this means I’m going to need to work some other job at least part-time. I’m considering doing short-term software contracts (which I’ve done before).
