According to the calendar it has only been 3 weeks since I left my full-time job.
It feels like a lifetime ago. (If I was a cat I think I might be on my last life…how many have I had now? That may be a good topic for another post…)
In any event, it was only 3 weeks ago that I left full-time work for part-time work. My overarching goal is to spend more time on my writing to see what I can make of it.
In that short time I have begun to acclimate to my new, completely different, schedule – and the kids’ school and sports schedules. (Hey, yeah, high school sports take up a lot of time.)
I have also written 2,500 words for Book Two of the Scottsville Exposed series; written blog posts and posted a few Instagram updates for both vinegar and vanilla and dreams in french; begun to slowly resuscitate Nadine’s Facebook page and launched a Facebook page for vinegar and vanilla.
I’ve barely scratched the surface.

There are piles and piles of poems in various stages of completion, a few short stories, at least two novels begun and left to wither on the vine, blog ideas, photos to post, lists and lists of ideas for promotion, monetization, cross-pollination, actualization, fruition, creation, amazingnation….(I just made that word up, I kinda like it)…well, you see where I am going with this.
To switch metaphors on you I have essentially unleashed my creative Kraken.
And she is big.
And has a lot of arms.
I’m a little scared of her.
