As spring turns to summer, I am so grateful for my writing life.
I'm not a morning person, so I do quiet things like journaling and drafting while my inner critic is still asleep, and then chores around the house as I get going. During the day it's crazy hot in Texas, so I gratefully crank up the AC, and continue writing and taking care of my clients from wherever I'm working that day. Then comes my favorite part of the day! I can enjoy the cooler evening outdoors, spend time with Steve, read by the lake, and play with Gizmo.
The best part is there is no boss there to bat an eye! After my strokes, I couldn't work any regularly scheduled job, let alone continue as a college professor or high school teacher. But slowly, as I healed and learned new ways to accomplish tasks, I've been able to teach in a different way. I write, speak, coach, and manage social media for others. I'm not where I thought I would be at this point in my life, but I am so grateful for my current situation. This freedom to read and write what I want, to follow my creative passions, and to serve the writing community is why I became an authorpreneur, and I’m thankful for it every day.
What do you love about your summer schedule? I'd love to know how you chose whatever career you are in.
