Last week I said that I was almost ready to become fully self-employed but all that was stopping me was fear.
So today, I did it. I had a chat with my boss, as I have no desire to leave her in the lurch, and I’ve arranged to leave in mid-January. Then it will be sink or swim!
My head is mashed now. I have found it very difficult to keep up with my writing and editing commitments while also going to work two days a week, and the finances show me that I can live on my self-employment income now. I’ve been on the go since 6 am and it’s 5pm now and I’m not at the end of my to-do list. I realise I really have to give myself a chance to do this and follow the dream…
That’s it. It hasn’t sunk in yet. I am sure my last day will be very scary indeed. But for the moment… I’m in a daze.
