Are things better? Yes.

Full time jobs are hard and take a toll on a person. They are necessary even if they feel like betrayal to your real calling- if I could only delete any needs I pretend to have, to do nothing by follow the sun day by day an transfer his energy into writing.

Financial stability does feel good. I started this job last fall and have already received too much money, more than I know what to really do with- I can allow myself to dream of things, things I never thought we in reach, but it still feels like selling a part of me to something big and inconceivable. I will be a Proposal Writer soon, it's not the type of writing I wish I was doing, but it's selling my words, not for happiness, but for mere continuity...and that's better than swimming in the uncertain waters of last year.

I have less time to myself, and yet I write more than I ever had before. I constantly recall that "those who do nothing never have any time, yet those who do everything always have time". I wake up early each morning, taking the silence as my own and I progress, writing becoming a need instead of a discipline. Of course, I still don't find myself disciplined enough, but that will always be.

I found the eyes and minds I needed, I think. The support group is a good motivator, reality checks on a string...I do hope it will lead me where I wish to go. The chasm of publishing is as deep as ever, as reading on the subject is not really helping, like it usually does. What helps is reminding myself that the message and the sharing of the message is truly important, I could care less about success... My writing still hasn't made a true friend however, I'm still searching.

I'll be moving out of my basement apartment soon, some sunlight, actual windows, it might be what I need for spring.

Hi! I revised the second part of the Sands of Ruin Intro you commented on a while back, and thought you might want to see it? It's far from perfect, and I've been pointed out a few spelling errors, but I would like to know if its an improvement or not in your eyes? [link] Cheers!
