I’ve been working hard towards making it possible for me to leave my day job. I’m hoping that working from home will give me the freedom I need to write more often because I feel like my life is missing something when I don’t have a chance to write. I need to write the way some people need to breathe. Like most people, I gave a few dollars to the 600 million dollar Powerball. I couldn’t help myself, but I’m a realist, so I’m not counting on a huge lottery win to make my life easier. I know that I am going to have to work extremely hard in order to make my dreams come true and I have finally reached the point in my life where not pursuing my dreams isn’t an option. In a couple of weeks, I will be 30 years-old and I can’t say that I have taken any legitimate risks in my entire life. I confess that I have lined up a few work-at-home positions because I can’t fully commit to writing. It’s not that I don’t believe in my writing, it’s that I have bills to pay and the rational person in me frequently reminds me that I need a reliable source of income in order to continue life as I know it. I’m not sure why I’m writing this. I guess I just want to get it out there. I can’t believe that I am taking a very real step towards having more free time in order to write. For the first time in a while, I’m excited about the future and I can’t predict my next move. It feels good!
