I don’t know, I think truth be told I’d quite like to write, but right now I’m so self conscious of my work that I don’t even post who I am on here, let alone try and get myself out there. Maybe I just need to get over it and go for it. There’s only one way to find out isn’t there? I think, in all honesty, I’m still clinging to the naive belief that my dream job is out there and I just haven’t discovered it yet. When really, in the back of my mind, I know that I’m probably just one of those people for whom work is a means to an end. It pays the bills, keeps you out of trouble, and makes you able to afford all the luxuries of life. I’m a right cynic. Never mind, eh? I can still hope that one day someone will pay me to read for a living.
