Moved Out!

Apologies for not having posted anything for a couple of days. I had intended to have at least one post every day for the whole year but that plan has been abandoned now. The reason I’ve been so busy is that I’ve moved out this weekend! It came as quite a shock and I’m a little sad at how it came about (unfortunately it’s the result of a break-up between two friends of mine) but I’m excited. For the past few years I’ve been living with my parents as I tried to establish myself as a writer. It wasn’t too bad, despite the social stigma of living with one’s parents, but they’re good people and I’m grateful to them for putting up with me for so long. But I’ve been working as a freelance writer for about a year and a half now and I’ve finally got to a position where I can support myself. It’s not an easy thing, and to be honest part of me is still worried that I’ll run into a problem at some point because the nature of freelance work fluctuates, but I’m sitting here in my new lounge and I’m thinking,’ life is good’.

So for all you other struggling writers out there I’d just like to say keep going, it is possible to make a living from writing. It’s not easy, and I really hope I’m not jinxing myself by typing this, but at the moment I am very proud to be able to call myself an independent, professional writer.
