2020 Third Quarter Kick-Ass Income Report

Writer friends, the McLoughlin household is healthy and happy and ready to head into a prosperous Q4 2020 (October, November, and December) — and I wish the same for you! (October's monthly income is posted now, so check it out!)

Third quarter ended well, even though I was also homeschooling, running a household, joined committee at the homeschool co-op, and my husband was working from home. 

I am still blessed to be able to work from home proofreading, blogging, writing articles, and writing books and to be able to do it in my sweatpants or swimsuit, out on the deck or at the dining room table, at my house or traveling with my kids and husband for his work to places like Wyoming, Arizona, Texas, Chicago, Florida, and more. 

In fact, we just got back from a lovely 11 days in Nashville, TN, Charleston, SC, and Savannah, GA!

I like to share my income with you to show you that I am a real person with real challenges and successes. No, it is not a full-time income, but I am not aiming for that. I am thankful and grateful that my husband has a good job, and my main job is homeschooling. Words are my part-time job for now. When the kids are grown, I foresee working more hours with my word career and helping to pay for travel and retirement. But that's at least 10 years away :-)
