Awhile ago, I received a text message from my editor, asking me to cover something for her exciting new section.

As much as I wanted to do so, I couldn’t because of work. And so I replied to her message, saying that I couldn’t do the assignment slated at 9AM because I have work until 10AM.

Surprised and a bit unconvinced, I sensed, she sent me another message: “You have work on sat mornings?”

After explaining that I now do transcription work Tuesdays-Saturdays, 1AM-10AM, I received one of the most inspiring messages I ever received: “Why aren’t you writing full time? You should be writing.”

That got me thinking.

I’m still thinking about it right now. And I’m pretty sure I’ll be thinking about it even more during the next few days.
