    But I'm old and I have to maintain what I've

    accumulated and obligated myself to, to change directions. If you're unattached, take advantage of it before you become attached. FYI: attachments include jobs, spouses, kids, debt, obligations etc.

    Not Quite the Right Words...

    but I don't feel my heart is truly in it. The thing is I have nothing else to do. I haven't ever shown a particular interest in anything apart from writing. Quite frankly though my writing is childlike at best and being an author is hardly a stable career choice. I don't know...
