Have I thought of everything? Well, probably not, though I sought advice in person and elsewhere--life always has some surprises. But sooner or later, to make a change, you have to take that first step out into the unknown.

Last week, I told my employers I'm going freelance. Happily, the guy in charge did something similar in his past, so he wished me well. He complimented my work there and said he would miss being able to rely on my hard work, communication skills and legal acumen, but overall it was a very positive conversation. As soon as we finished, he got an ad out to start the process of finding my replacement, and once she or he is found, we'll schedule my final day. As tired as I have been (and this cold, cold winter has been hard on me), I spent rest of the day grinning.

I'm still shifting mental gears, of course, but submitting stories has, by some mystery of mental alchemy, moved more to the front of my thoughts, and that's happening, one story or poem at a time. I'm making lists of stories to finish, and places to submit to. I have hints of storystuff peeking out from the corners of my consciousness, though I spent so much of the weekend sleeping that I missed some of the Olympic events I'd planned to watch.

And now, I must head to sleep again, since 8 am is still very, very early for me.

You googled it ... Then you put it where I could see and enjoy it. Thanks.

Good luck to you! It can be very stressful, but also very exciting!

Thanks! Yes, I'm excited, and impatient, and sick today too. (What did I eat?)

I like sleeping in, not going to sleep when I feel creative because I have to be in an office too early (for me). But soon!
