For 27 years, I worked for CenterPointe Energy and one day my boss said, "You're not happy here. You should quit."
And I did.
Four years later my daughter said, "you're not happy working in an office, you should be come an occupational therapy assistant."
So, I quit my job at the City of Golden Valley, sold my house, moved in with Rich in La Crosse, WI. and became a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant.
I worked with children with Autism in La Crosse, until I received an email with an job offer in Waukee, IA. I worked for over a year in a skilled nursing facility until Rich said, "I'm not happy in Iowa. We should move to the coast and you should write."
So, we did.
2016 is all about writing.
I have been writing my whole life. I love writing, it makes me very happy. I have previously dabbled with writing and have had success with getting published, but writing is no longer easy and I struggle to get the words on the page.
I am not sure if it is because I do not have a routine.
Do I need to establish a schedule?
Do I need to join a writer's group?
Do I need to find a critic partner?
But I never wonder, "What if..."
