Off I go….

So, this is my third day on the new job.

I really like it so far!

Basically, what I am doing is, I am a accounting/billing clerk at a local utilities company.  I will go through the client billings that are assigned to me on a daily basis, which are called “Hi/Lows.”  I have to verify that the usage per month is consistent, and make any necessary changes if it isn’t.  And then I send out the bills.  I deal with both gas and electric.

So, it’s different than any job I’ve ever had.  But I’m picking up on it really quick, and it’s going to be interesting and challenging.  And fun.  Yeah, fun.

It’s 8:30 to 5 (CST), Mondays through Fridays.  I work on the 17th floor of the building; thus, I hate the elevators, because they make my ears pop, and they’re really fast.  But oh well.  Plus, the office building is two blocks from the bus terminal – makes getting to and from work a snap!

So, yeah.  It’s good.

According to my recruiter, this assignment only runs until April 2017, with the possibility of extension.  

We’ll see, I guess.


So.  Novel news.  “Cherchez La Femme” is still going strong.  The current word count total is over 225,000 words.  As a Word document, it’s approximately 454 pages long (with necessary page breaks inserted between scenes).  I’m about three-quarters of the way through this, the initial rough draft.

I still have a long way to go with it.

But I am loving it.

I do have a question for you, my blog readers and followers.  Do you or any of you live, or have you ever lived, and/or visited New York City before?  Any stories/anecdotes/specifics of the city would be helpful to me, or if you know of any specific resources I could look at, that would be great, too.  I’ve tried looking online, but there is so much stuff out there, I’m a bit overwhelmed and I’m not sure where to start.  So.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Break time is over.  Gotta get back to work!

I’ll try to do better next post!
