Ethics, morals, compassion— what if they didn't exist? What if the world treated those words as curses? Laws mean nothing. Commitment means nothing. Jade Greer’s parents raised her in the old, moral, ways. She still clings to their teachings. The world rejects her. She has suffered. But, her storm is over. Or, is it?
Also, starting Tuesday, I'll be back in school. I'm going for my second Masters. This time it's a MS in Publishing: Digital and Print. Don't know what I'm going to do with it. But, I've been unemployed or underemployed for almost two years now. I'm tired of getting calls from Sallie Mae. Going back to school seemed like the only way to solve my money issues since I'll be getting a nice refund check each semester. And, I can get a job on campus as a work-study.
Besides, for years, whenever I thought about a career, writer always came to mind. No matter how practical I wanted to be, I always came back to writing. I got my MS in Library and Information Science because I didn't want to be that writer who worked at a job they hated while they waited for their book to explode. Two and a half years of school and I went right back to a writing career. I learned a lot from that program. I just didn't find a new passion.
It's kind of annoying. I know being a full-time writer is almost impossible. I'm hoping a MS in Publishing will help me find a way into self-employment. You never know. This will be an interesting Fall/Winter- going back to school and my novel, The Sciell, comes out in March! Adventure awaits!
