So, now I know. I’m officially out of a school psychologist job for next year. But if something comes up over the summer, I could still take it.
But perhaps this is a cosmic message saying, “This is the time for you to follow your dreams!” And now, more things are happening with my Examiner.com status – I have become credentialed, which basically means I have greater media access to local events. That’s something to feel great about, but I’ll need to finally submit to better paying publications, if I’m to make a real go of it. That and get the photography really moving and take pictures that I can upload to stock agencies. I’ve gotten some accepted…now I need more. And I need to go for iStockphoto and Shutterstock. Then I know I can make a living from all of this
A backup plan: I may go back to copywriting, but this time for the web or catalogs. I couldn’t stand writing the direct mail stuff, and I just don’t think I could do that again. The other things I’m looking into are graphic design and internet research. A lot of things are going on, and these next few months could be very interesting.
Maybe this turn of events, as scary as it’s been, is the push I’ve needed to really take off.
