New Work

Well, the job interview I had Monday has paid off.  Out of 400 applicants, I have been hired to writing eCommerce position, though at the moment I don't feel it would be appropriate to say where.  I can say that it is related to cos-playing, Cons, public performance, theatre and costumes suitable for Halloween and other special occasions.

I am looking forward to the position; I'm looking forward to dealing with the public and using my writing skills to earn a daily living.

There will be some issues with my weekly game; I don't know my schedule yet, but it will be five days a week and obviously I won't have access to the game during work hours.  Until I know which days I'll be working (I only know definitely that Sunday will be one of them), I can't say at this time what the effect will be.  But I will work something out.

It will sound to some that this will mean I have less time to dedicate to writing ... but in fact, the truth is that I am already happier ~ and when I am happy, I am more productive with less hours, than I am with many hours and feeling despair, despondency and depression.
