OH. MY. GOD. Life is getting so crazy but so exciting right now.
So, this post is not really writing related, but I just have to share because I'm so excited. In the last few days I have signed up to be an Avon consultant and a Thirty One consultant Half of you are probably thinking; "why do we care about this?".
The reason I think it's so exciting and worthwhile to share is because I've been working 45-55 hour weeks all summer long (hazards of the lumber industry). On top of that work load I drive half an hour to work and half an hour home, once I'm home I turn right back around and take my dog on a walk or to the park. By the time all that is done I am mentally and physically drained.
I haven't had time to write much in the last two months. I joined Camp NaNoWriMo last month and only got 2,000 words done. It was at that point that I realized that if I want to get a book published anytime soon I need to cut down on the work hours so that I can write.
Hence why I am announcing this career change. It might still be a few months before I officially quit my current job because I have to make sure I can still afford everything on Avon and Thirty One's commission, but at least I'm taking steps to advance my writing career.
I am so excited to be taking this step back from the office grind and making time for my writing once again. With this change I am hoping that means I will be able to put "Make A Wish", "The Little Match Girl", "Maxwell the Brave" and "The Long Road Home" into your hands (or kindles) sooner rather than later.
So please, stay tuned and listen for news of my books coming out soon.
