25 Days of Christmas Ornaments day 12

Professions are easy to turn into Holiday ornaments. The other day I showed you one set of the nurse/doctor ones I’ve received over the years. Today is my retirement career.

You all know I retired from my job in 2015 when I got my first writing contract with The Wild Rose Press. The day I turned in my resignation was one of the happiest – and scariest – of my life. Happy because I was finally being given an opportunity to do what I loved, full-time. Scariest because…no income. The potential for income was there, but I knew it was going to take a few years ( read: several!) before I saw any substantial cash in the royalties department. I still can’t support myself to this day on what I make as a full-time writer each year, but it’s way better than when I first started out in 2015.

That year, for Christmas, I bought myself this ornament as a testament to my new career:

It’s perfect in so many ways, but mostly because it’s a. a typewriter, and b. pink.

LOL

I wish I had my own pink typewriter in real life. I have a writing friend who actually does. I’ll need to save up to get myself one, one of these days.

More tomorrow, peeps.

  1. I buy a new ornament each year, even though we have many more than we need for the tree. I love your pink typewriter.
