Making a change

My writing has taken an about turn. For the next month or so, I am going to work hard at freelancing, to see if I can generate an income stream that way. The WiP novels will be going on the backburner for a while. However, short stories and articles will be pouring out of Lynne’s fingertips.

I was inspired to this by John Birmingham‘s ‘How to Be a Writer: Who smashes deadlines, crushes editors and lives in a solid gold hovercraft’ and by some articles I’ve been reading in back copies of the Queensland Writers Magazine. After all, I’ve been looking for work for years now. Time to take more control of my writing career.

The novels will be finished. I promise. But for a month, I won’t be touching them. After that, they will be delegated time depending on what else is happening.

So tonight, I am working on a nonfiction article for The School Magazine.

    Sounds good – all the very best with it! I find freelancing in the non-fiction world to be a good, flexible way of generating income 🙂
