This time of year is my busy season. Being out of work hasn’t eased any of it, in fact, in a lot of ways it’s made it harder, busier. Looking for work is a full time job, as they say. Add in the work I do for SF Pride, and some freelance editing, not to mention my own writing and you get one busy little author!
I have an interview today for a job I’d really like to get at a company in San Francisco that is working to change the landscape of finance for those who are un-banked or under-banked. It’s a wonderful combination of work that I love and a cause I can get behind.
Yesterday, I spent most of my day working on Pride stuff…paperwork that all needs updating to 2019, contracts and acceptance letters…all kinds of fun stuff, then I cut out about two hours of my afternoon to read, an indulgence to be sure.
I recently won a leather bound edition of The Song of Ice and Fire, and have paused in my Sirens reading to start reading these. I’m not quite two thirds of the way through the first book. I’m interested to find how the books differ from the TV show.
I’m up early this morning, and hope to work on a short story that I’m writing before I have to start getting ready for the interview. It’s a sci-fi piece about a girl who accidentally becomes an assassin, first out of necessity, but then discovering that she is good at it.
Right then, I should get to those words, and my coffee while it’s still hot.
