In about three months, I will be taking a very huge step. I will give up my day job as a psychologist to write full time. Being a full-time writer has been a dream for me for as long as I can remember, but I never thought that the day would come when I could actually afford it. It always seemed like a pipe dream to me.
But now the sales numbers have been looking great all year, and I’m also working as Ylva Publishing’s senior editor on the side, so my life-long dream stopped looking like a pipe dream.
On December 22, writing will stop being a hobby and become my job. That’s exciting and scary in equal measures. A thousand questions run through my mind. What if I have writer’s block and can’t write for months? Am I allowed to take weekends off? How much time do I spend on writing and how much on marketing? How do I structure my workday? …
Unfortunately, I don’t personally know any writers who have gone full time, so I thought up a way to learn from other writers’ experiences and at the same time offer fellow full-time writers a chance to promote their work.
So, if you are a full-time writer or know any full-time writers willing to be interviewed on my blog, please send me an e-mail (jae_s1978 AT yahoo.de), and we’ll set something up.
I’m looking forward to sharing this exciting experience with you!
