JULY 2014:

AFTER THE WINTER ALWAYS COMES THE SPRING,

 It’s been a while now that I’ve been wearing long johns under my jeans. It’s been a while since we had a break from the rain, snow, cold and sleet. But this week the sun came out for a couple of days and it was warmer. This week I could take off my snow jacket and hat :)

This last six months I have spent virtually every day on the phone and in face to face contact with Lawyers, Solicitors, Welfare Workers, Government Agents (Centrelink), Employment Agencies, Banks, Mortgage Brokers, Counsellors, Psychologists, Teachers, Financial Advisers, Tax Agents, Accountants, Doctors, Specialists, Education Institutions (this list is nowhere near finished but you get the picture). Divorce is a lengthy process.

But, as with every winter, comes the spring and with spring comes the rebirth: I find myself wanting to get back into my writing but am a completely new person. I’m not wasting anymore time marketing and promoting my novels or writing fiction. As of today I have decided to go back to school to study freelance article and travel writing – a long held dream of mine. 

I know it’s a difficult industry to break into (small chance of success or making any real money along with an increasing sense of futility – what am I waiting for :)) but at this age, following my dreams is really the only important thing in life and – speaking from experience – having bucketfuls of money is not the be all and end all. Following your dreams is. So wish me luck, my dear ones, until next time …
