I’m working as a temporary receptionist this week until Thursday for the North East Chamber of Commerce. While I hadn’t planned on doing much of anything this week in to run up to my cruise on Saturday, it’s nice to have a few spare pennies to use for necessities. This also means that Thursday and Friday will be a hectic, mad dash to get all of our packing done and the cleaning etc so that I’m ready to roll on Saturday.
In other news, my second audiobook is on hold for a while as I am really unhappy with the quality of the first recording and may need to re-record a little of it. By the time I get it sorted and accepted by Amazon, it could be weeks before its ready. I’m aiming to get it out by Christmas. There’s no hurry after all. I’m not planning to attempt any kind of advertising of my second book since it only really appeals to a limited and specialty audience. It’s lovely to have found the twin flame guys but I don’t think the subject matter is all that mainstream right now. I will however, set regular free days so those who wish to read it can do so at no cost.
I’m hoping to get back into full time employment next year and take a break from writing and audio books for a while. Really the books were simply my way of fulfilling a promise I made to myself some years ago, to write the story of my life down and set it free. I never had any desire for fame or fortune. In truth, I never expected anything I’ve written to have any real meaning to the people in the world currently. From my memories, my work in some way helps those who live about 50 years after my death… I take my memories on faith even though I can’t possibly know the ramifications of what I’ve done at this point in time. All is revealed in death…
I was planning to sell our house this coming January but we’ve decided against the idea, given the current property prices. I’m giving it another could of years to pick up instead…so I’ve got plenty of time to find a nice full time income before we get that that stage (and maybe fit in the odd cruise… I’ve been dreaming of a Canadian Autumn one recently lol)… I’ve came to the conclusion recently that my life is heading in a somewhat different direction to that which I had always believed, so there’s nothing left to do but bed down and make the most of it.
The upshot of this is that I may well be taking a slower approach to writing next year, if not taking a break all together. I tend to go through phases in my life and I think I’ve said most of what I had to say. I’m also hoping to get into a studio next year and start recording some of my songs for the sheer fun of it… Perhaps I will stick them up on You-tube or something…who knows. I’ve realised recently that there is no reason why I can’t do anything I wish to do… I will think about a third book at some point but for now, plans for that are on hold too. When the creative juices begin to flow once more I will think about it then.
This will probably be my last post for a couple of weeks as I’m going to be a little busy having fun lol.
Have fun guys and I’ll speak to you all again soon.
