Friday I submitted notice that I’m terminating my consulting contract as of mid-July. So I am soon to be homeless and jobless since my current contract also provided me with housing.
I’ll also be substantially poorer since the consulting work actually pays obscenely well.
But, you know what? Life is too frickin’ short and showing up to that environment every day is just not how I want to spend the hours I have on this earth.
Of course, I say that now. Talk to me again in six months when I’m broke and no closer to making money off of my writing.
But, for now just walking away and freeing myself 100% to focus on writing feels like the right thing to do.
(Or at least freeing myself to focus on what I do want to do on a daily basis that will keep a roof over my head and not take years off of my life by driving my blood pressure through the roof and making me doubt my abilities to interact with other human beings…)
So, off the cliff I go. Wish me luck!
