At that time, I took PayPal payments. I have no credit card and would need to tie it to my debit card and/or bank account. In case of a dispute, they are allowed to put a hold on that account until the issue is resolved. This could mean major disaster for me because of unexpectedly bounced checks. So I chose not to do it. Now I am wondering if I should give it another try, and just pray, and pray hard, that no such dispute arises, ever.
Meanwhile, I am continuing my free lance writing efforts. However, that ship takes a long while to come in. Many things get written, but not everything gets accepted. Once accepted, payment can take months, or even up to a year, to arrive. It’s just a fact of that field.
I refuse to stress over it to any worrisome level, but I must admit it is on my mind. I’ll simply re-assess the facts and make some decisions.
Along the way, I’m still crafting for the local needy with the yarn folks have donated to us for that purpose, and I still have my own yarn for lots of projects. There is never a day I’m not crocheting and it is still one of the best stress-busters I know, except for a purring cat.
Wishing and hoping and praying that each of you has, or quickly finds, your own such stress-buster, as well.
