The Lost Girls have decided to write a book about our yearlong journey and today we had our first meeting with a potential literary agent. The trip has made me really think about what matters most, so Iíve decided against taking a permanent position until I finish this project. Itís not a smart decision financially, but Iím going to pay my bills by freelancing on the side.
Sure, not taking a job scares me, but being too busy to finish the book scares me more. Plus, toiling away at a desk will suck time that could be spent working on the foundation the girls and I said weíd start. After seeing this big, beautiful world, I want to find a way to give something backóand I donít want life to get in the way.
