I'm doing this now

This week. Wow. The corporate part of my day is not a suitable subject for this here ephemeral document, but one thing must needs be said. I gave my two weeks' notice and I don't have anything lined up to replace it. So I anticipate some adventures coming up, some wacky hijinx, more frequent gym visits that aren't at 5am. Man, those early mornings... sayonara!

Everything is fine, by the way. Just fine. I will make this work.

Whatever else is true, 2011 will begin very differently than I anticipated.

As I explore new career opportunities, I am also going to write and submit fiction. My online subscription to Writer's Market is good through 2012, so thank you Corporate Me for that bonus. It's high time I wrestled the fiction beast.

No, I do not expect this to be easy. Perish the thought. But I have the benefit of this being my choice, having a supportive husband and network, favorable circumstances, and a sense of urgency. It's the urgency bit I've been missing. And now that I prod the wound, I also find an undercurrent of Why the Fuck Not? (Not so couth down there, I'm afraid)

So that's how it is. I'm about to go live in my head full-time, until it's time to rock the business casual again. Who wants to come along?

Awesome! Too bad it comes AFTER I get employed. But still, I can't wait to hear all about it.
