It feels great to spend my time doing more of what I want to do. I no longer need to set aside a couple of days a week for NewsBreak. I can write whatever I want, start working on the eBooks I’ve been putting off, or maybe just have lunch more often with friends. It might seem strange to view a loss of income this way, but it’s like getting a new lease on life.
I sometimes regret starting to write for pay — it keeps me from my more creative, personal writing pursuits. I’m glad you found the silver lining of losing this revenue stream!
