Back to work!

At the day job, that is 🙂 Alter ego works at a federal agency, so I’ve been part of the furlough. I’m glad to be back to work at the day job because it provides a lot of structure for planning my day. However, after being off for nearly three weeks, I need to get used to the alarm going off in the 6 o’clock hour again. This morning I hit the snooze button for a good hour and a half.

I am continuing on with the self-publishing project, and am now missing having the whole day to write since self-publishing includes so many more tasks beyond the writing. If anything, this project has confirmed for me that traditional publishing routes are what I want to pursue for longer projects. No matter the results of the venture of alter alter ego, I’m very glad I experimented with this publishing method. Thanks to the many panels I’ve listened to on this topic in the last year plus, I do feel that I was prepared for the challenges presented by self-publishing. However, there are also a lot of issues you will only stumble across as you attempt it. I’m very grateful for my friends (and alter ego’s friends) who have been so generous with their knowledge of self-publishing.

Question for the day: if you were unexpectedly off work for an extended period of time, what is the thing you would fear most on your return?
