I’m taking a chance and changing the path of my life. It’s a little scary, but more than anything else, it is truly exciting.
I don’t generally talk about myself on these posts but this is kind of a big deal and I want to share it. I gave my notice at my “paying” job and my last day was May 3, 2019.
These last two weeks, my emotions have run the gamut and I’m still decompressing. I’ve been there fifteen years and there are some wonderful people that I am going to miss a great deal. I wish them all the best and I hope we manage to stay a part of each other’s lives, even if it’s just Facebook stalking.
They gave me a sendoff with a very appropriate message on my cake:
My true passion is writing novels and now I can live my life and still take advantage of this time to get more of them written. I have so many stories in my head that are begging to be let loose.
The next challenge will be to figure out how to market them, which is not my forte, but I am willing to try and will have to learn to multi-task in whole new way.
The greatest value that I am gaining is time, something I think we all could use much more of. In addition to being able to relax and write, I’ll have more time to spend with family and with friends and with my girls, now 11 and 13, and who are very needy.
I have a dream and I will do everything in my power to make it come true. It remains to be seen if that will happen, but I’ll always be proud that I took that leap of faith and gave myself the chance.
The third book in my Devereaux Chronicle series, Devil’s Gathering, will be released June 1, 2019. I hope you’ll check it out.
