Now that I am not working full time, I have a little more flexibility in my schedule.
Obviously, I’m still getting up early to work out and spending the majority of my day at my desk, but since my only boss at the moment is myself, it’s a little easier to wiggle out of writing for a day.
If I have a good reason, anyway.
Lately, that good reason has been renewing some neglected friendships. Between Covid and work, my writer girls and I have not been getting together as much as we wanted to when we started our little group. We chat almost daily and sprint together and offer encouragement, but actual in-person interaction is rare.
I’ve missed them.
And their stories.
So we finally got some dates on the calendar to meet up and look over our stories, talk about our lives, and get some group writing done.
It was a blast. We missed one of our lovely members, who, unfortunately, couldn’t escape her job to join in, but the rest of us were able to meet up, have lunch at my house, spend a few hours outside in the glorious sunshine, and share a bit about where we are in our writerly journey.
Days like that are healing to my soul, let me tell you.
Being a freelancer also has the added bonus of being able to work where I want, when I want. This particular month, that means working down in Missouri while I help a friend prepare for her wedding, and writing in the car while out road-tripping with my amazing husband.
I’m gonna tell you all about it, I promise.
When it’s over, and I’m back in my house and can get my head on straight.
Until then, I’ll be working away from wherever I happen to be and enjoying the May sunshine. Yay for spring!
