Going solo

Two weeks ago, I quit my job.

Being sensible and assuming that I wouldn’t become a millionaire as a result of writing fiction, I’ve always thought I’d really quite like to run my own business. As of 1 April 2014, that’s exactly what I’ll be doing.

But what kind of business? That’s a good question.

I will be a freelance copywriter and content strategist. I have work lined up and that’s how I expect to make my money. But one of the perks of self-employment is flexibility. All being well, I’ll have time to pursue other avenues, including writing that pesky second novel.

Having bought a house, had twins, published a book, lost a job and then found a job, all in the space of two years, I feel well prepared for the challenge ahead. The time feels right. I’m excited and looking forward to it.

There will be a new website for sure and I’ll have a company name, but that’s about all there is to say for now. I can think of at least one juicy detail I’ve left out, but I’ll come to that later.

Thank you for reading and listening. I’ll still be blogging here and the Write for Your Life podcast is back this month. The future looks a bright shade of splendid.
