I’ve been torn about this decision for a long time.  I thought I’d made it and then the restaurant I work for was bought out.  I told myself I would hold off on the decision until the new owners had some time to get organized.  It’s been a few weeks now and the decision was looming over me.  Stay or quit and go back to writing from home full time.

I know that there is money to be made with writing.  I’ve done it before and I have enough offers that I can have the same amount of income in much less time when compared to the hours that I put in working for someone else.  It shouldn’t be a hard decision.  But I hate to quit a job. I feel like I’m hurting someone.

But then I remembered that the job I do is not rocket science.  It’s cooking.  New cooks can be trained.

But it is hard to find something you love to do. And I love to write.

After a few days of talking it over with my husband, I decided to put in my two weeks notice.  I did that on Monday.

I have some clients lined up and starting the first week of July I’ll be doing ghostwriting again.  I’m looking forward to it.

My biggest challenge is always time management.  I confess – I have a bit of a Facebook addiction.  I can waste hours on it.  Days even.

So, my husband and I came to an arrangement…

The router gets unplugged before I get up in the morning (he’s always up before me) and I get up by 10 am at the latest (ok, I know that is late for most people but I’m a night owl.   I like to be up late – I’m not really productive when I’m up late though) and I don’t get the Internet until 1 PM at the earliest.  I write whatever project I’m working on from 10 AM – 1 PM.

At 1 PM I get an hour and a half for coffee/lunch and errands.

Then from 2:30 PM to around 4 or 5 PM I work on Daily Two Cents/Writedge stuff.

Then I get some time to write for me.

If all goes well, I’ll be able to finish by around 6 PM and spend some time with my hubby.

I’m excited about going back to the life I love – working from home!
