This is something that I’ve seen happen in the Christian world a few times but never in the atheist world:
Greta Christina is leaving her day job so she can become a full-time writer/speaker
I will no longer have to stop in the middle of a productive writing day and go do the day job. I’ll be free to schedule my speaking gigs based on whatever works for me and Ingrid. I’ll have more time for reading, for networking, for keeping up with news, for promotion and publicity, for returning emails, for hustling up more writing gigs.
And very importantly, more importantly than anything, I will have more time for writing. And writing, and writing, and writing.
I have been working towards this for decades. For most of my adult life, really. I have been working hard at this, and making it close to my top priority, for a decade. I almost can’t believe that it’s really here.
