Writing For My Life

The other day I looked at Dean and said "I don't know what I want to do with my life!"

I was talking to Ammye and said something similar, "I just don't know what I want to do when I grow up. I'm only 47!" 

But honestly I know what I want to do and what I keep refusing to do, write. I want to get paid to write. Problem is I don't write. 

Everyday, and I mean everyday, my heart says, "go write." But 99% of the time I don't. 

I've been out of work for over a month with no excuse but I found excuses. The biggest is fear. Letting fear win is what separates the successful from the could-have-beens. 

Yesterday I started back writing. That nag is relentless, she wants to kick fear in the teeth and she does when I let her.

I'm gonna let her have her way. 

I still hyperventilate wondering what I'm going to do right now for income, I still need a paying job.

Please let me know if you know of something. Take a look at my LinkedIn profile:
