Goodness me, look at the time!
It's funny how often just when I'm on the verge of packing it all in and getting a proper job, things pick up: and that's what's happened in the last few weeks. People I haven't worked for in ages have resurfaced, and my regular clients seem to have perked up, too.
Not only that but I've also been commissioned to write a book! I can't tell you what it is, because I'm ghosting it for someone. That means my name won't be on it, of course, but I'm hoping I might get a mention in the acknowledgements. It's going to be hard work, I know, but I've made a promising start.
By the way, in case you were wondering, my public speaking engagements back in October went well. Since then, I've also done my first WI presentation, which was great fun. I spoke a bit about my writing and read a couple of my short stories (one from Nine Lives and a piece from Stripped-back Yoga), but the meat of the session was getting them all to write something.
This week's public appearance is playing my uke tomorrow night for a community gathering. Never a dull moment!

Ghost writing?! That sounds like a wonderful adventure. I know it'll be hard work, but I think you'll have fun, too!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Priscilla. The challenge, I think, will be keeping my own voice out of the text.Delete
What an exciting time for you, Julia! All the best with the Ghost Writing project - I imagine it will be hard work but satisfying.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Rosemary. I'm ready to get stuck in.Delete
I'm glad things are picking up for you.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Patsy. I always seem to get busy just before Christmas, when I could do with slowing down!Delete
