New Year, New Career (Okay, Maybe Just a Day Job)
Now that 2024 has officially begun (we’re past the New Moon in Capricorn), I want to make good on my promise to fill you in on the new job I hinted at in my last post:
Before I get into it, let me explain why I’m hiding this post behind a paywall.
It’s not about money. I offer a 7-day free trial, which is more than enough time to read this and every other paid post in my archives.
I’m writing this post for paid subscribers only because of the personal details and opinions contained within. After decades of oversharing with the internet, I’ve learned my lesson more than once. I never know who will read what I put out there, and the paywall helps guard my more vulnerable bits.
That said, I am offering 50% off paid monthly and annual subscriptions. The discount lasts forever, but the deal ends Feb. 3.
For $3 — approximately the amount of loose change you’ll find in the laundry — you can absolutely make my day. Every time I get a payout, I think, “Yes, values what I do.” And that means everything.
The Write Lauren is a reader-supported publication. To support my work, consider becoming a paid subscriber.
I will reveal what I’m doing because I’m sure I’ll reference it in future posts.
Ta-daaaah! My new day job is delivering mail! It’s something I’ve done before, so I knew it’d be a good fit. At least an okay fit. I probably won’t freak out.
Now that the capybara’s out of the bag, I’m going to hide the emotional upheaval of the weeks leading up to this change, and my take on the ever-evolving writing industry (mass layoffs, AI, and more) behind this paywall.
