I’ve either made the best or the worst decision of my life. I’ve taken redundancy.

Shortly I will unemployed (read “freelancer”). This is the biggest challenge of my life. I’m shocked, excited, scared, inspired, horrified in equal measure. It gives me the chance to go home. And to work for myself. And to finish the goddamn novel.

I can do this. I can work for myself and try and figure the rest out. I have the backing of the most important people in my life; my family, my best friends, my fellow redundantees and the person who knows and loves me the best. We are both a bit tapped at times, but loving and being loved like that, you don’t take for granted. You can’t.

So I’m taking a leap. A fall from the fifth floor hurts as much as a fall from the hundredth. If I have to fall, may it be from a high place. (that’s Paulo Coelho BTW)

But also, give me work. My business is called Word Alchemy and I basically turn shit into gold. Words, press releases, review, social media activity, marketing. give me ALL YOUR JOBS. And then let’s meet for wine on a tuesday afternoon. Or not.

This is a Brave New World Indeed. Still can’t believe I fucking did it.

I like gin, mittens and otters, not necessarily in that order. Here's some stuff I felt like writing down when I'm not chained to a desk writing other things for a living. Please use caution when using this site; there may be sweary words, cute animals and general bullshit. Don't say I didn't fucking warn you.
