As I type this between two skyscrapers of packed boxes, I feel as though my schedule is getting a little out of hand. In the past few days I was so busy packing I completely forgot that a book review was due yesterday.
Moving house is starting to catch up with me! With less than a week to go and a few shifts left at work, it’s a big scramble to get everything into boxes ready to go. You truly don’t know how much stuff you have until you’re trying to move house.
I’ve had to press pause on writing entirely and only read what I need to get a review out on Wednesdays and it’s slowly killing me. I’m antsy, fidgety and with all my notebooks and pens packed away, I have no outlet. This is what a world without writing is like and I’m horrified.
I’m in good spirits, it’s an exciting time after all. But it’s definitely difficult going day to day without doing any writing whatsoever. At the moment my employment situation is still uncertain. For sure I won’t be transferring to another store with my company but I’m still keeping an eye open for any vacancies.
The prospect of leaving my job is both terrifying and exciting. Terrifying because I have a thing about financial independence. I don’t want to rely on anybody, I want complete self-sufficiency. There are reasons for that I won’t go into but that’s how it is. Excited because the possibilities unemployment represents is a dream.
The closer we get to December, the more possible this dream becomes. Without a job I can try my hand at being a full-time author, which I’m sure I’ve said in my previous posts several times. If I’ve said it a million times already it’s because I can’t quite fathom that it could actually happen.
I already know exactly what I’m going to do if I get this opportunity. I’ve got a day planner, a diary, all the self-publishing courses I could ever need already under my belt and a plan for a brand new series. Not to mention an actual office to write in rather than on the sofa. Needless to say I’ve already gone overboard with magic-style decorations.
All this madness is enough to make anyone a bit flustered but I’m determined to keep up the blog even while we’re moving. Even if the posts are a little late here and there. This time next week I’ll have both the time and the space to keep up with the blog, reading and writing to the fullest extent. That is, before going back to what might be my last week of working for a company.
One way or another this is the start of a new chapter and by the next reading round-up, I’ll hopefully be able to gush about it! Thank you for bearing with me while I go through this transition. It’ll definitely be worth it on the other side!
Thanks for reading! Did you know I also write urban fantasy books? Check them out here!
