Dont' worry, I'm not going over to Romance writing or anything that bizarre. But, as I think I mentioned previoiusly, I've changed day jobs. I'm one of those adventerous types who left the supposedly safe walls of a huge corporation (Ford) and jumped into the world of small business. I've been with Hensley Mfg. for a week now. The thing about a new job, it's like selling off everything you own and starting over. Things as simple as sending a fax have to be re-learned. Where are the paperclips? How many scoops of coffee. And, with a small company, there's no one to take care a lot of those details for you.
But I love it.
It's not writing novels for a living, but it gives me a little professional freedom. What I do really matters, that's something that I could never say in the big company. And, now that I have a later start, I can write in the morning undisturbed before coming in. I'm on chapter 4 of "Murder on the Side," the first in my River Bend Mysteries Series. Good buddy Robin asked if it was ABA or CBA. I hate that question. It means I have to make crucial dicisions. Not that I'd fill it vulgarity either way, but CBA looks for certain things that ABA doesn't care about. I like the thought of ABA because I picture myself as a Jan Karon sort, who could reach millions of people who'd never step foot into a Christian bookstore. On the other hand, do non-Christians really read her books, either? I'll have to ask Jan when we do lunch.
Anyway, I was told by many smart people--just write. So I'm just writing.
By the way, I have been reading alot lately as well. I stopped my little reviews unless something really stands out. I've even been reading a little non-fiction as well. More on that later.
