Things On My Mind #5

If you’ve never read one of these post on my site before, this is where I just get some random thoughts out. Sometimes it has to do with writing. Sometimes not. #1 Still having problems with productivity This seems to be the biggest problem I have to overcome. I have a hard time sticking to any sort of schedule. If I’m not working, I have a hard time getting out of bed so my day doesn’t usually start until noon. I’m convinced that if I am ever going to be truly productive I need to get up earlier. I’m...

Fiction: Make Money By Writing

So, you’ve heard me talk about writing ebooks and making money with them right? I’ve gone from as little to a handful of dollars a month to $800 dollars a month in writing fiction.

I forgot to renew the domain (I actually thought about completely letting it go but I decided I really like having my own little place online) and then renewed it and it didn’t come back up but I got it fixed. Yay! So, I’ve been “unemployed” for a few weeks now. I still think sometimes maybe I shouldn’t have quit my job but then I remember all the pain and I know I didn’t have another choice. But, I am writing. And grieving. My dad passed...

A Long Overdue Update

How long has it been since I’ve posted here? I don’t know. A long time. I guess that is because I was really struggling with decisions. What to do with my life. What to do about the job that I actually liked but was causing me pain. What to do about making money. I haven’t got it all figured out. 🙂 But I have figured some stuff out. Here’s what I know: #1 I can’t live in pain and get worse all the time. I did love waitressing – most of the time. I liked my customers. I was...
