Sudden – though not totally unexpected – career change occurred on the day job, which allows me a much-longed-for break to focus on writing.
It has meant a wholesale rearrangement of priorities.
Before, I was pootling along quite comfortably, writing in lunch breaks and evenings, and casually “focusing” on a play.
Now I’m suddenly time-rich, but on a stricter budget and wondering what’s ahead.
Plans … and I have lots of them … that have been languishing as pipedreams are now ripe for tackling.
But the emphasis is on the returns that the various projects can bring – financially preferrably, but also in terms of long term benefit, not just for lovely warm glows in the tummy.
After years of wishing for it, I now find myself needing to put talk into action. Gulp!
One upshot – I can blog a bit more frequently, and apply some TLC on the website.
As such, a couple of new sections have been added:

- “Writing/Editing Services“ is the biggy, as I embark on monetising my grammar nazi tendencies, reacquaint myself with technical writing, and expand into other freelance writer-for-hire avenues. The destination website is still a work in progress, but goes “live” once the ABN and business name is sorted.
