Friday marked my last day of employment. I quit two weeks ago to pursue writing full time. 🙂 Naturally, I had to celebrate.
On Friday, I gave two weeks notice at my office job. I will be pursuing writing full time. I won’t lie. It was difficult to walk away from a paycheck. It was the first job I have ever quit. However, everything else about the decision was easy and the reason why might surprise you.
For my first novel Tied, I reserved my writing time for weekend mornings. I got up at 6am on Saturday and Sunday and wrote for a several hours. My first draft took eight months. For my second novel, Vermin, I’m doing it differently.
