Don’t worry. I probably won’t have the focus to maintain these updates about my attempts to escape penury. Today I’ve been looking into freelancing opportunities. There are plenty of freelance writing jobs out there, just very few which have a broad enough remit that I might actually want to write about something that interests me and would permit me to be funny. Many of these ‘opportunities’ are demands for 1500 words articles, ten times a week, about electronic cigarettes, for which I’d be paid a cent a word. I can’t think of many things I’d be less motivated to write about.
So, I’m currently hammering my way through an article about computer games and I’ve also had a few messages from people who have enjoyed the Sparks strips. I’m now hard at work on Episodes 6 and 7. They should appear in a few days if I can maintain my concentration levels whilst also sending my CV hither and yon.
