I began a new full-time job this week with Verizon Wireless, a cell phone company. It’s great, since I love all things tech. Steep learning curve, since I’ve never even owned a cell phone! The company is awesome, with good pay, tremendous benefits, a warm supportive culture, and plenty of room for advancement. If you’re looking for a new job, come on over!
Things were getting bad at iUniverse, with employees depressed and angry (and justifiably so). So I was eager to put it behind me and move on.
Where does all this leave my writing? Well, I’m taking a brief break while I’m training on the new job. I’ll be able to return to writing with a fresh new outlook. That’s one of the great things about writing–you can always return to it, and you can enjoy it until you die or get Alzheimer’s. As I wrote to my fellow employees on my last day at iUniverse, “That’s one thing they can never take from us. The world of books will always be ours.”
