The bad news is that my family has been struggling financially. Too many long-term freelance projects ended too close together. Those that remain are inadequate by themselves. Replacement projects have been hard to find in this lingeringly difficult economy. I’m being considered for several employment positions, but those are taking too long to meet immediate needs. So, it’s been a struggle for us, especially considering the financial hardships have impacted the boys and altered their routines. They’re not happy about it.
Of course, it’s not that I haven’t had work to do. This experience has kept me very motivated to make as much progress as possible with my book, while still seeking out other opportunities. I’m accumulating a very nice word count and I expect I’ll be able to keep that up. The project is taking shape quite nicely.
So, I’ll take the bad with the good and continue to pray that things get lastingly better very soon.
