Well, alrighty then.
Writing and publishing is bringing in a few dollars here and there, but not enough to cover my modest needs (avoid starvation, etc.). Therefore another course change. I am about to be licensed as a public insurance adjuster solicitor, which, briefly, is someone who helps property owners realize what their insurance does and doesn't cover, and helps them get what's owed them. It's an interesting way to spend time. It will bring in more money in two hours than will six months of writing and selling books.
So writing will go back to being a hobby.
Let me know if a tree falls on your house. And if you follow the link and sign up with Metro to be a solicitor, put me down as sponsor. Brownie points for me. Note: Not a job. You aren't an employee. Perish that thought. :-)
