I wrote this post in my little pocket notebook around 11:00 am while I sat at the bar in Armand’s in Bloomfield (Little Italy) while sipping on a draft beer. Armand’s is about a 15-minute walk from my apartment.
The day beyond the window is beautiful. The sun is shinning and it’s around 65 degrees outside.
I’m enjoying my retirement now that I have financial stability; but because my stable income is still small the challenge is to live within a budget which I still have to prove that I can do.
The other challenge of retirement is to give structure to your life. When you don’t have to be anywhere you have to find reasons to get up for in the morning.
Being the editor/publisher of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is one of the reasons why I have to get up in the morning. I’m constantly promoting this publication online and in real life. I’m constantly searching for writing talent online and in real life to showcase in the magazine. Yesterday, I gave an online interview to another respected flash fiction publication about flash fiction; and I’m constantly trying to come up with ideas for posts and for new ways to get the word out about flash fiction.
And there is my work as a performance artist: karaoke.
