A Passion Project...

It's been a while since my last entry, mainly because I'm just finding my feet in this new-fangled freelance era that I seem to have thrust myself into.

I'm not sure how so many of you do it so seamlessly -- it's tough! But infinitely worth it (if only for the lack of grumbling on Sunday evening), or for the break mid-week to meet loved ones who are visiting, or for the innumerable things that flexibility and independence can buy.

I won't bore you with the stress levels, multiple melt-downs and steep learning curve when it comes to doing only a small amount of free ka kaam, or -- most crucially? -- chasing payments (invoice, invoice, invoice everyone and keep track of everything lest you also lose out on money owed to you here).

I will share with you a passion project that's been some time in the making -- an endeavour to create a safe and informative space when it comes to mental health. Mosey on down to to check out some of what we have been doing stealthily, with a little help from the shoemaker's elves, and a whole lotta help from mental health experts who are backing what we all hope to be a solid initiative. 

Will keep you posted on how it goes ... and invite stories from those of you who wish to share!

Till then, take it easy! And thanks for stopping by.

PS Another rant for another time is definitely going to be books biz-related, mark my words. But for those of you who have been so lovely as to buy The Sibius Knot and/ or Broken News, mille thanks! And hope you enjoyed them! For those who haven't heard of them -- please hasten along to the books page :)
