I managed to escape the permanent day-job about eighteen months ago. Since then I’ve worked at four different places, and I’m enjoying the changes.
This month I started work at a new place, a school for extremely naughty kids, and though the students can be extremely challenging (to use a popular euphemism) the staff pull together: like me a lot are temporary, but they’re cool.
Anyhow, I’ll be gone from there by the summer, and I should have enough money together by next winter to actually stop working full-time and devote more time to living. And writing of course.
And I haven’t got round to publishing The Baptist yet. But I will, soon. Working on a new series of covers – very plain, simple and identifiable – and when I sort one out I’ll publish it.
