Sometimes I feel like a writing machine. I write blogs on the Tube to work (as I’m doing right now); I get to work and write stories; I spend lunchtime writing my novel; I write more work stories in the afternoon; and guess what I do in the evening? Yup, I write the novel again.
In between it all, I write tweets, Facebook posts and replies to people under these posts, and I also write a weekly email to my Patreon supporters.
And you know what? I love it so much. It’s what I always wanted to do with my life. I can’t quite believe I get paid for putting beautiful words in order!
But I love taking photos and making videos too, so hopefully soon I’ll get to do that for a living as well as writing - which might make me feel less like a writing machine. Because writing all the time is probably a little unhealthy.
Some people have said I can’t change career and diversify, but I think those people would once have said I couldn’t make a living as a writer either. I’m living the dream, but luckily, sleep is the one time when I get a break from the keyboard!
