Yep, my year plus drama at work with layoff, no layoff, new layoff, no layoff, etc. has finally officially ended for good. Today I sent in the papers that officially ended my tenure at the multi-national financial services company I have worked at for seven plus years. I’ll get seven months severance (not in one lump, it will be paid out as a continuation of my paycheck for seven months or until I get a new job, whichever comes first) to live on while I figure out what to do with the rest of my life.

And, of course, what I WANT to do is be a writer. So it’s time to start getting really serious about that.
