One of my many bosses said to me: “You do lead an exciting life!” over Skype the other day.
I’ve never heard anyone call it that before, but maybe he’s right. I write novels; I edit other people’s novels for my publisher, Taylor Street Books, who are in San Francisco; I edit non fiction for a Canadian doctor; I work at a shop in the newly built mall in my town, which is rather like Acorn Antiques, if you remember that programme!
I am quite proud of myself actually. I have built this writing career out of almost nothing, and I’m almost at the point of earning enough to cover the bills each month. Hardly rolling in money but its a brilliant start! I hope it continues.
My publisher has hinted that some of their books may be made into films, I know of one definite example, so maybe I’ll get invited to the premiere!
So perhaps it is an exciting life after all, not one of a boring housewife!
