All grown up

My heart just did a little jump. I signed up for a seminar at the Virginia Press Association — an all-day affair on business reporting. Normally, were I still gainfully employed, I would have heard about this and said, “Damn, it falls on my editorial deadline day. Maybe another time.” But not today — I am free as a bird now. Not only will I have a chance to learn and to network, but it’s also a tax write-off.

I took great joy at striking “editorial deadline” off my calendar and writing my new plans over it. Much as I would rather have a paying gig, I delighted in feeling like a “grown-up” who is truly in charge of her own schedule. Why didn’t I quit the “real job” circuit sooner?!?!
