So, today I got laid off. I’ve been working with the same company for 11 years, since I moved to Canada in fact. And now they’ve been bought out and I fell victim to the latest round of cuts.
Don’t feel sorry for me. My prospects are good and there’s lots of opportunities out there. I enjoy what I do as a day job and I have a young family to support, so I will definitely be starting the job search soon.
However, I find myself in a situation I’ve never been in before. Right now, other than dad and husband, my only current employment is… well… writer.
Holy crap! I’m a full time writer! OK, so I’m a writer by default; this wasn’t planned by any means. Nevertheless, for better or for worse, for the time being my occupation is writer.
Guess I should go write something :)
