A new year, a new post, a new website…

I'm back in the saddle again

…same old shit though, really. God, it’s been embarassing looking over these old posts. It’s made me realise how many false starts and do-overs I’ve had with my writing. And how many times I’ve vowed no more, that this is the time it will stick, that I really, honestly, truly do mean it this time.

And yet, here we are. A new year, a new post promising this is the time. But I actually do mean it this time. Here’s why:

In the years (!) since I last posted, I’ve started working for myself on the understanding that it would give me a better work/life balance and give me time for writing. (Spoiler: it didn’t initially, but I’m established now and able to take more flexible options.)

I’m facing a BIG age milestone this year and I really don’t want to enter another decade full of coulda shoulda.

Fear and shame are fucking huge motivators.

I feel ready.

Let’s do this.
