Good news: Tracy is no longer wandering amongst the ranks of the unemployed!!
As long as the required background check doesn't pull up my cameo on the "Writers Gone Wild" video, I've got the position! Happy Dance time!
The ONE thing I've been diligent about during the last 10 months was writing. I'd actually gotten myself into the habit several months back of getting down 2K every day. I KNOW I can do it -- even with the time & energy required for a new job -- I just hope I can keep my internal procrastinator in check.
Anyway, as a gift to myself for landing the new job (like I really need a reason to shop for myself ... it's what I do), I broke down and shelled out the moolah to get the Nook from Barnes & Noble.
I've been enviously eyeing that sucker every week, when I walk past the in-store display and I could resist the desire no more.
I'm prepared for the "TRAITOR!" comments. It's okay. Throw it at me. I understand the venting. I swear, Nookie (that's what I named him) doesn't mean I've lost my love of actual BOOKS. Going forward, any story I like well enough to want to read AGAIN will be purchased in trade paperback version, promise.
I do need to remind myself, however, that my lovely new device is attached to a credit card. One I'm required to pay the bill on, so my book binge shopping sprees are going to need to be addressed in short order!
