On Ice

by Jonathan 1 Comment

I feel like Rip Van Winkle, except rather than sleeping, I’ve been working. What can you do? For the time being, I’m going to be in blog stasis, with posts being oh-so-occasional. I’ll do my best to keep my current reading project updated.

Oh, and if any news breaks on the road to publication.

There’s a strange irony that I am doing this as a result of my job, which involves a fair amount of blogging. Ah well.

I am probably most active on Facebook if you care to keep tabs.

Happy new year!

Irons in the Fire: Diversification for a Writerly Future

by Jonathan 6 Comments

There must be a dozen articles within easy grasp that advise against quitting your day job to embark on your writing career. That’s probably sound advice. As far as I can tell, there aren’t enough wealthy patrons to go around.

But what if you’ve got an eye on freeing yourself from the 9-5 and reaching the lifestyle you want?

Diversification’s not such a bad strategy. Instead of planting one seed and hoping it’ll grow, sow a handful of different ones out there. You probably have more than one interest, so why not explore them. And it doesn’t all have to integrate, hence the diversification.

Having a few irons in the fire isn't always a bad thing.

I’ve got a little secret project that I’m getting off the ground. I can’t talk about it just yet. It’s nothing fancy and it doesn’t pay, but it ties in nicely with writing and reading and could lead to something down the road. It doesn’t involve me dressing up like Little Bo Peep, I assure you.

How do you work toward living your ideal life? If you already do, how did it come about?

This About Sums it Up

Yes, things are this chaotic. And weird. Or at least they seem to be.

Forgive the terseness of my latest posts. I’m still trying to find balance. The good news is that I’m still writing and revising. And so the social media stuff suffers for it. Could be worse.
