In Four Months
In four months I plan to be out of this apartment. I have developed a plan. Hopefully it will work. If not, I'm still leaving, even if it means going back to the streets. Don't worry. It may not come to that. Just know that me going to back to the streets will worry you more than me. With 14 years of experience living homeless on the streets of Nashville, I can deal with it. But lets not even think of it in those terms. That's just the default situation if nothing else works out. In the next four months I will be dedicating myself to two projects; spending as much time as I can selling the street paper, hopefully building up a savings, and writing as much as possible for publication on Kindle, which of course will eventually mean publishing for any e-reader. Technology is coming along that will make such publications available across all platforms. The one caveat about publications is that it takes 90 days to receive payment for my writing. Anything bought today would not show up in my bank account (via direct deposit) until December. Anything bought next month will not show up until January. Therefore I'll have to focus more of my energy on selling the street paper. With whatever money I'm made by the end of December, I'll go looking for a room to rent. I now have two subscribers to my blog via Kindle.
