Movin' On

Posted by Nora Quick on Wednesday, January 23, 2013, In : A Writer's Life 
Sorry for the delay in postings. Both the new Love on the Run and Secret Desires are up on Literotica. I've been taking a break from writing and blogging to focus on my night job, and preparing to move.

In March, I'm packing up from Chicago and moving to Los Angeles.  It seems life has more promise there for me, and I'm going to explore.

Well, after all the drama of the last month, it's ending on a low note: as a result of losing my day job when I informed my landlord I'd be late with January rent he responded by kicking me out, giving me 30 days notice. That's the downside to renting month-to-month, those assholes can do that.

Perfect. So now I make half what I used to and now need to magically come up with rent and a security deposit plus movers within 30 days. Real great. I'll land on my feet somehow. Don't ask me how, but ...
