Did I Make The Worst Mistake Ever?

  
Hello Followers,

So, remember when I said that I wasn’t feeling panicked? That I felt like I did the right thing in quitting my job? Yeah, well, that feeling has passed and the panic has crept in.

I felt it for the first time this morning when I received an alert that my debit card was rejected for a payment. It’s only just the beginning. More payments will be rejected and that makes me nervous. Did I jump the gun? Was it all a pipe dream?

I think I was being too ambitious thinking that I finally get to live my dream. This isn’t working. I need some serious income.

This week and a half that I got to be a writer full-time was great but the real world is calling.

I wonder if McDonald’s is hiring?

Review: Cartel Dreams: A Love Story by Nicety

  
GENRE: Urban Drama

HOW DID I COME ACROSS THIS BOOK: This has been on my idle for quite some time. I believe that I got it for free.

SPOILERS: Slight

READER SYNOPSIS: Twenty-three year old Daisy is a all around good girl and thinking about grad school. She finds herself tempted by the bad boy next door Quince. Daisy is hiding a secret and Quince is making moves to change his life.

WHAT I LIKED: This is a interesting story with a lot of potential. It has all of the makings of a story that could draw you in. The cliff hanger does make me want to read the second book to see what is going on, if there is a second book.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE: I had a hard time getting through this book. This book was not formatted properly, which I found very distracting. Chapters bled into each other. The awful formatting made me feel as if the author did not care enough about the project.

A bit of the story is unrealistic. Daisy lives in an urban neighborhood, yet she is naive to Quince’s job considering he has tons of cash stashed around. I think it’s pretty obvious that he sells drugs but somehow she manages to be completely clueless. Also she drops her best friend for this guy. They’ve been friends for years yet a guy she didn’t initially want manages to tear apart her friendship?

It was also a bit more explicit than I like.

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Had the formatting been better this book might have received a higher rating.

SHAMELESS PLUG:

Enough Hours In A Day

  

Hello Followers,

So, before I quit my job I made a statement about there not being enough hours in the day. That if I had more I would be able to get some serious writing done. So why am I not taking advantage of this extra time I have on my hands?

I did do some writing yesterday. That made me feel good. I have on book out, my second will be released in July and I need to put a serious dent in my third book. All I’ve ever wanted is to be happy. Working another meaningless job was not making me happy so I did one of the scariest things and I left that meaningless job to chase my dreams. I have to remember that. Though it feels like a vacation, it’s not. These bills won’t pay for themselves.

I think I get it now. Although I haven’t fully started panicking, I know that it will start once reality sets in. I have to get it together. Plus, I still have to purchase my ISBN for One Shot, Two Shots cause I can’t release it without one.

I am accepting members for my release day street team because nothing will stop me from releasing this book. With that said, I’m going to go do some writing.

I will share an excerpt from my third book if this post reaches 10 likes or I get 200 followers.

Lazy, Lazy Girl

  
Hello Followers,

Day four since my self imposed unemployment and I have done nothing and I mean nothing. Well, that’s not entirely true. I did outline my third book and I’ve done some light, light writing but I think I am enjoying not having to get up and go to the “office”.

I should probably actually do some writing. That is why I took this time off.

So, I guess now that this blog post is done I should get to work. This is very important to me and I want to succeed at it. Since I am not making any real money yet I have learned that I am not opposed to begging. So, with that said, you guys can help me out already no the way by making donations and or making a purchase. I am working on some fun merchandise and of course I have a book out. The awesome thing is Power is avail for free on kindle. Your reviews will help bring in more purchases and that’s awesome (did I say awesome twice?)

I appreciate any and all of your support and that includes following and reading my blog.

Until the next time folks ✌🏾.

What Is This I’m Feeling?

Hello Followers,

  

It has been two days since I walked away from my job. I did everything right. I even gave them more than two weeks. Today when I should have driven to work after I dropped my mother off at her job, I drove home. I should feel weird right? I’ve worked this job for two years and have had a pretty consistent schedule the entire time. I thought that I would feel panicked, especially considering that I was panicking on my last day. I mean, I did just quit my job to become a full-time writer. Now I have to rely on my writing to pay the bills and I’m not happy to say that it doesn’t look good.

I only have one book out and it’s not selling the way I thought it would. I had such high expectations for my career and now I am really going to try and make a go of it.

So why am I not panicked?

I feel almost… calm.

At peace with my decision, really.

I feel like everything is going to be okay, which is very weird because I have high anxiety and depression and normally I would be freaking out. Like I should be balled up in a corner, rocking and crying.

Yet, I feel completely fine. My heart is racing like it normally does and I’m not running through all of the worse possible outcomes.

Will things be okay?

I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

I Quit

Hey Lovebugs,

So yesterday I did the most irrational thing I think I have ever done. I quit my day job.

Yes. You read that right.

I will not go into detail about what led to my decision just know that inequality is a bitch.

Although I think that this might be the best decision for me I am scared out of my mind. I never thought that I would ever leave my job without a backup plan. I’ve done it before but it was when I relocated on a whim and that terrified me. This is completely different in the sense that what the hell was I thinking?

Wish me luck guys.
