Short post today because I started a new job. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail due to NDAs and such, but basically I’m working for a consulting company with a large financial institution on a foreclosure-related project. Cryptic huh? I’m pretty tired at this point since it was my first full day of working in quite a while; my last job was a part-time contract position, and before that as a part-time bookseller. In fact my last full time job ended in May of 2008, so it’s definitely quite an adjustment.
Juggling writing and work will be a challenge, like today I haven’t written anything. That isn’t exactly ideal given that I’m in the middle of NaNoWriMo, but it is what it is. Hopefully tomorrow I can get some writing done. This real life and job stuff getting in the way is kind of annoying.
But I’m thankful for the job because it is going to provide me with a level of financial freedom I’ve never had. If that means I don’t quite complete NaNoWriMo, that’s a small price to pay (as long as I still get my writing done, that is). After all, with my financial house in order I’ll be able to devote more of my free time to writing rather than worrying about my finances.
