I was starting to get a bit full of myself, posting once or twice a week, but the organisers of the Least Prolific Blogger of the Year awards have been in touch and I needed to rein it in a bit if I was to retain my title. So blog silence for a few weeks. But I haven’t been idle. No, siree.
My cosy mystery has gone to my editor for its first read through. I’ve also passed it onto a couple of friends, one of whom has already commented on the swearing…hmmmm.
Through another friend, I’ve done a couple of articles for Fabric Magazine to get some experience of freelance writing. Here I am, bigging stuff up: Organic September, Coffee, Cocktails, Cats and posh art.
I’m doing an Open University online writing course and I’ve signed up for a one-day writing retreat. I’ve had a idea for an online business, and am trying to come up with a fabulous name and logo for it.
My BIG PLAN is to somehow combine all these things so I can generate enough money each month to be able to work from home. My alternative plan is to slip on a squashed tomato in Tesco and sue them for millions. Might need to move to America for that one to be successful.
Unfortunately, someone else had this idea for a website before I did:
Yep, that’s it. You pay a dollar just to see how many other
suckers people have paid a dollar to see how many people have paid a dollar to see how many people…and so on, until you’ve made a million. Bloody genius.
Any other great money-making ideas out there??
