Well, I already have a new job. I start tomorrow, my 58th birthday. It doesn't pay as much as my old one, but I was also contacted by a Dallas magazine publisher who would like my help part-time, so I may very well be making at least as much, if not more in the long run. Plus I got a start on my novel, with a tentative title of "1985". Wrote 3,500 words so far.
I also responded to a solicitation by donating a story to the upcoming ConDFW souvenir book.
