I realize I need to incorporate some big changes into my writing life. I've known these changes were necessary for some time but I have been putting them off - until now. If I am determined to make it in this world of publishing novels, it's time to put all the pieces in place to give me the best opportunity to do so.
The first thing I need to do is discontinue freelance copywriting. Writing copy and editing is proving a detriment to writing my manuscripts. Although it has given me great insight into the power of precision writing, it robs me of my ability to let the words flow from my mind to my fingertips.
On that note, I had an interview for an out-of-home job yesterday that I feel went very well. This job is totally unrelated to any kind of writing which will be a benefit. It will also give me an opportunity to deal with the public - and watching people is something I love to do.
The other big change will come tomorrow when I start my new manuscript for NaNoWriMo. As much as I love the WIP I am editing now, I need a break from it, even if for just a week or two. The new manuscript will keep me writing and, I hope, provide the inspiration I need to carry on with the first.

Who said change isn't good.
