Today marks the one-year anniversary of the day I quit the corporate world and began working for myself. The time flew by (far faster than it would have had I not quit, since we all know time goes faster when you're having fun). And I have been having fun. Not only do I look forward to going to work every day, but Cody and I are better off financially than we ever have been in our 9.5-year relationship, and we're in a much better place emotionally without me coming home every day either raging mad or in tears. Life it good.
I'm a little shocked that I still haven't completed Madison (two years after I finished writing it!), though. It's been, sadly, on a back burner for almost a month now, and as you might have guessed from the sporadic blog posts, I've been very busy lately. First with birthday goodness, and now with a wonderful influx of work. I'm sincerely looking forward to September 23, which is the next day I'll get a break, and hopefully it'll be the next day that I work on Madison (if not earlier) and do the final polish I desperately want to finish and send off query letters.
Because once I do that, I'll be able to give myself free rein for story-building my next novel. (Yes, I do a little dance in my chair every time I think about that.)
