One Week to Go

It's Sunday evening as I write this and you know what that means ... that familiar feeling you get the night before you have to go back to work on Monday .... except that next Sunday I'm hoping it will be noticeable by its absence ...

One week from now I will be self employed. One week from now I will be a full time writer (well for the time being anyway), and I'm so excited!! I know I will miss my friends at work but the sense of relief I have felt this last week, letting go of everything at work, all the problems, all the stresses, is testimony to how right it is for me to leave now. Everything has its time. I'm not foolish enough to believe that things will be plain sailing from now on, but they will be problems of a different kind, and I relish the challenges ahead.

So, I've spent the week preparing things both at home and at work so that come next Monday I can hit the ground running and crack on with my latest projects. I'm determined to sqeeze every last drop out of the opportunity I've been gven and so I've tried to get as far ahead as possible with my copy edits so that they can go back well before the deadline, and I've also nearly finished editing the first draft of the sequel to Letting in Light so that I can send this on to my agent shortly.

Sign up to my newsletter if you want to hear all about the exciting things coming up this year, but just to give you a little clue, I've spent part of the weekend mocking up four (yes I did say four) new book covers! I enjoy doing these almost as much as I enjoy writing the books and it's something else I'd love to develop this year, but perhaps that's a story for another time....
