A year of being self-employed

The autumn is here – my favourite time of year. As you can tell from the length of time it’s been since I last updated, things have become VERY busy. Over the summer I’ve been writing about 16,000 words a week, and I’ve had so much work that I’ve had to turn down quite a lot of incoming requests for copy, which I don’t like doing, but I just haven’t had time. Luckily things have quietened down a bit now, so I’m taking on new work for the first time in a while. If you have anything you’d like me to write for you, do let me know!

I’m still loving being self-employed, and I’m daily grateful for not having to commute, or sit for hours in pointless meetings. I devote one morning a week to volunteering for Guide Dogs (for the Blind), where I look after lots of gorgeous puppies. I’ve neglected my PPL over the summer as I’ve been so busy, but I need to get it finished off over the winter else the ground exams I’ve done will become invalid.

Air Experiences is still going strong, though Lee’s been doing most of the running of it while I’ve been so busy with copywriting. We’ll be doing some Christmas gift fairs again this year, which will be a chance for me to get more involved with the business again. I’ll also be doing more blogging for the company in the coming months.

On a personal note, some happy news: Lee and I got engaged last month! So that’s very exciting and we are starting to plan our wedding now! We’ve just got back from ten amazing days in Florida, which you can read about (along with everything else I’ve been up to) on my other blog.

Once again, let me know if you’d like any copy – I’m taking on new clients and projects at the moment, so I’d be delighted to give you a quote or discuss your requirements.
