I didn’t think Allume was going to happen for me this year. It sold out before I could get a ticket. There was little chance of having days off from work approved. And then there was the money factor.
Without getting into too many details, the money worked out and a ticket became available.
And I quit my job.
I didn’t quit just to go to Allume. There were other factors, not the least of which was the realization that what I was doing, as worthy as it was, ran against the skills and passions that God gave me.
Within a few days of walking out the door with no real plan for the future, I had a call, a superquick interview and a job that started less than a month before Allume … and they still let me take off two days!
I told myself it was confirmation from God. A reward for following his path and returning to a life of writing.
Next up? Building my blog, connecting with people who could help grow my blog and gathering posts into e-books.
Bigger, better, bolder!
