I hereby accuse myself of neglect.
AoP is in a sad state of disuse.
I definitely do not lack for writing.
What I do lack is time. My work doesn’t have defined walls anymore. I still have a day job for 4 days a week (hopefully soon to be 3) but I have many many hours of work right here. At this computer. At home. It doesn’t end at 5. It doesn’t confine itself to Monday-Friday.
Do I mind?
I wouldn’t say that. I know that transitioning to freelancing is exactly what I need, for both the present and the future. And I already love many things about it. I love not driving to work. I love that I can go take a walk anytime I want. I love that if I need to go to the doctor or run an errand I don’t have to ask anyone for permission.
I especially love the variety of topics. In the scant 2 weeks I’ve been doing this I’ve researched and written on everything from photography, to cardio exercise, to Football (UK style). I never lack for variety of topics and that keeps it interesting.
This weekend I have 5-6 hours of work to complete my first big article job. I will get it done, turn it in Sunday and hope they hand me the next quickly.
But tonight, tonight, I will veg. Monday Mourning is calling my name.
