New Horizons and Beginnings

A job I have been working for the last 4 years is coming to an end and I'm surprised I made it all the way without throwing in the towel! There were many moments that made me frustrated and I wanted to quit, but I was helping an uncle struggling in business, so I stayed to help. The pay was lousy, but it's all he could afford. Now he has a new job and his magazine is going to be sold to an interested party in the distribution area. This means I will have to fill my time with something else. I have several things in mind already. It's not like I was just sitting around waiting. I've been trying to write ebooks and get them out there, but it has proven difficult with the projects all the time. Now the opportunity to finally set in and get it done is presenting itself. I would have liked to have already gotten them started earning, but that's okay. Now I can sink my teeth in and run with it. It's always an odd transition from one 'job' to another, but I think this time I'm finally going in the right direction.

endings can be sad, but I hope the beginning you get from this ending is wonderful

I tend to go with the 'broken egg' approach to endings. I break the egg so I can't go back. Then the only path is forward. :)

A lot of my relatives appreciated that I was helping him as well. Fortunately I was still working on a more permanent solution to my situation.

Thank you for the compliment! It's fun so far. But I'm nowhere near the pro level of writing yet! That might take a few years to reach.

@rowena292 Well isolation does help me out. I have a sleeping routine where I wake up early morning just because it's at a time I know no one will bother me. It's fairly helpful too.

Thank you. I'm currently trying my hand at it. In the end there's no simple road, it all requires hard work and effort to forge ahead.

Thank you. :) I'm going to start by pouring my talents into a mega work and getting it out there as an ebook first. If it gets a following, then I can elevate it to the next stage. Hopefully I don't 'disappear' from the things I have to say.

Here's the update on that situation: In December I published my first ebook, and have published almost 20 since, over on Amazon. I'm just about to the same profit level as the previous job, through sales, granted it was a secondary job and didn't pay all that much to begin with. I'm working on stories all the time and hope to start publishing the next round soon and bumping the grand total up. I intend to go as high as I can, hoping to surpass the better paying locally available jobs and then going higher. Since I only started profiting in 2017, it's going well so far!

I just wish, with the US failing economy, that businesses including your uncle's will pick up and be saved. What's the genre of your book? What's the title? I wish you great success in the sales of your book. God bless America with Making it Great Again!

The one I'm planning right now is based on the environment. I'm calling it "Defeating Climate Change", and it will go into a detailed plan on how we can change the world and make the climate into something beneficial for us, which will improve the world economy and move us towards a better future. I will lay out how we can change the world and work to overcome floods, droughts and fires through my water plan, and then go into funding for these projects, how to move things forward with green energy and sustainability; before concluding with a section detailing large terraforming technologies that can change areas of the world quickly if a drastic approach is necessary. The main difference about my approach compared to everyone else's, is that my focus isn't on the air at all, but on the water. It should help to destroy a lot of taxes in the process, which I'm certainly will make me an enemy of the world's governments, but oh well.

All the best with your upcoming new project - it does sound exciting and, most importantly, it seems to be something that you enjoy doing...

Yep, time to step on the toes of officials around the world and detail a plan to stop climate change. :D One that doesn't talk about air like everyone else.
