I'm in dire need of a new job.

Okay, not dire. Not yet. But if I don't get one, the living situation is going to get mighty uncomfortable starting next month or the month after, because my hours are being completely slashed. I'm very unhappy about that.

But...because of it I've been writing like a woman possessed.

Is that the responsible thing to do?

Well, damn. That's the question, isn't it?

If I don't use this burst of motivation, I'm wasting what may be my last opportunity to do what I really WANT to do in live.

It's not entirely practical, though. I might be hiding my head in the sand a bit, not finishing up my resume and sending it out to all sorts of places that will add a commute and the inconvenience of not working at home. I know this. I'm aware. I'm also rather insecure about the interview process in general.

However, I want to finish my second draft of Elemental. I want this chance. I want to take this risk. I love this novel, and I want to play in this world for years to come. I want to write.

I really want to write, more than any other job I could have in the world.

I must be crazy, but if I am...I am okay with that.

My grandpa was an artist. He quit a well-paying job at an ad agency doing ad art so that he could paint what he wanted to paint the rest of his life. If he hadn't done that, I wouldn't even be here because my parents would never have met. There comes a point in time where you have to make that jump, or admit you never will.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go write a war that makes *sense* this time around.
