A Blast From the Past

Out of the comfort zone

The other day my husband suggested I try something completely out of my comfort zone in response to my 100 millionth bitch about my job... I hate my job. This will be a recurring theme so may as well get it out of the way now. However, I have four kids, a mortgage, a car payment and a husband embarking on a new career so I'm stuck with it. I'm ridiculously envious of him because he's doing what he's always wanted to. And unless someone out there wants to pay me to make fun of others, that's not an attainable goal for me.

 So here I am. I wish, more than anything in the world, to be a writer. Original, I know. However after having just finished another Jen Lancaster book I'm sure this is my calling. Oh, and to write for the Chelsea Handler show and maybe someday make the round table....euphoria. However, when one lives in Saskatchewan and began breeding just about as soon as physically capable and didn't stop until a full 13 years later, my chances are greater that I will be spat on by a client.

I'm quite positive I'm not at liberty to divulge what my current job is but believe me, being spit on is entirely possible.

  1. Definitely go for the writing thing...even if it means staying up late at night to work on it after you get out of your job as a spit sock! You do for your family...push yourself to do for you now, even if it means finding time that you don't have to begin with. Fuck...bring a notebook and pencil with you to the crapper to get things started! GO FOR IT! I will buy whatever you write for sure! Hell, I'll provide material if you want to write about neurotics! =))))

  2. I think anyone who can pull it off is awesome.

    Its not for me. I like to write shit, but I know its not my calling.

    If I had to do it everyday as a job I dont know that I would find it fun anymore.

    GOod Luck
