Forgive the extended absence.

So, it appears that I am being forced to do a lot of reevaluation in my life.

I won’t bore you with the details. Some of it would be…inappropriate to post in a public forum. However, the positions I desired have become unavailable, but this time in a way that makes it clear how futile it would be to continue. Which means my attempts for the last three and a half years have led me to being lost.

In addition, my plans for college went up in smoke a few weeks ago when the college I was looking at got their accreditation pulled due to a long and rather stupid political drama issue. I’m not up to going through all the details today.

This leaves me looking around, blinking in confusion, trying to figure out what just happened. All of my long-term plans personal-development-wise were just ripped out from under me. I’m not really sure what I’m going to do.

So, now I need to take some time to figure out what I’m going to do. There’s a few options. I can focus on a couple different variants of my current job. I can also simply refocus all my attention on my writing, doing my best to get published as fast as I can so I can become self-sufficient. The question is: do I have enough discipline to pull off being published and making a living at it.

It will mean a lot of very hard work…and almost all of it will be in the evening when I’m dead tired from working my normal job. However…I’ve been able to pull off National Novel Writing Month. And if I can get my writing down to maybe 40,000 a month…

It could work.

So we’ll see what happens. It should be interesting.
