When I answered a phone for a bank, it was what I did for a living.

When I write, it has so much more to do with what I _am_. I am a
writer. Will anybody read it or not? Will I get paid for it or not?
Those are relatively irrelevant, at least to me.

I have not yet gotten into blogging but a cable connection and new
laptop and much more disposable income and time* are all in the near

Dori Green, The Wandering Farmer

*Yes I'm still employed! Boarding my goats didn't work out and I have
made arrangements to give them away. They're leaving to a wonderful new
home in two weeks and I will have to find something else on which to
spend that money and time. I will be blogging about the process of
writing my fictionalized book about the whole experience of being a
completely failed organic farmer (and the international conspiracy to
eliminate all non-corporate farms). In the long run I will not be
surprised to be boo-hooing all the way to the bank. I did not
surrender, I was just beaten into submission. There's a difference.
