I’ve been thinking on this decision for months. It’s been rolling around the back of my mind most days, and I’ve swung from thinking it’s the best idea EVER right back to thinking it’s utterly ridiculous.

I want to make writing my life, but to do that, I need to make it pay. I’m squirming even as I type that, but no more than anyone else, I have to be realistic. I have bills that need to be paid! I can’t work right now, not in a ‘real’ job, but I can write. Please, please, PLEASE tell me if you think I’m way off the mark in doing this. You’ve always been honest with me, and it’s one of the things I value most about this little community that we have. The last thing in the world I want is to offend any of you, or for you to think I’m taking the piss.

  1. Absolutely. You write beautifully, it’s easy to read and full of pertinence. I’m a wannabe poet and would love to make it pay. Go for it. Barton.

  2. You must be feeling so fearful and exposed. Although, ultimately, we are strangers, I feel so unbelievably proud of you. Count me in – I’ve just pledged. I’m delighted to support you in return for the support, your writing, gives me x

    1. I do, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought of taking it down already! I’ll leave it another while and see if I get any easier with it. Thank you so much for pledging, really appreciate it xx
