Two Years Ago

Part of the Journey: A clue to the solution of the mystery–What shall I do in retirement?

Retirement from a 32 year career as an educator and school library media specialist

When I first retired, I was sure that I wanted a job–a part time job that would leave me free to pursue my writing, be interesting, earn some extra money, and make me feel “needed.” Oops.  It was the fall of 2008. All the jobs were gone. Every job listing I found had 100 or more applicants, it seemed.

Finally, a friend of a friend told me about a tutoring job that sounded interesting. It left time for writing, but it took lots of my time and brought in very little money. I stuck with it for two years and also worked for the U.S. Census for a short time. Meanwhile, I worked on my writing.
