So now I need to make a call. Am I a freelance writer or not? If so, I need to commit and get to work, rather than dicking around with resumés and human resources directors all day. Damn it, I wish it was that simple. Unfortunately, I don’t think a freelance cash flow could keep up with my bills right now.
On the other hand, since all I’m doing is sending out resumés and going to job fairs and interviews looking for a larger income, my bills are continuing to pile up. At some point the whole thing breaks down and I go to work at a convenience store. That bit is actually coming quite soon now if something else doesn’t develop.
Damn, that sucks. I should have just started work on another book back in March or April, I’d be coming into my next advance right now. Instead I decided I wanted to get into the “real” workforce. Damn stupid of me, damn stupid.
I guess you’re never satisfied with what you have until you’ve lost it.
