WRITING, COMICS, SCI-FI, SURREALISM
My first post should probably be about how this website began. How did I go about giving IT up?
Those two days off allowed me to begin working on some material. A comic, a novella, a cyber-security safety guide, children’s poems and short stories for Create50. Towards the end of 2017, it became clear I couldn’t keep up an intensive job and bring my writing projects to conclusion, let alone start anything new.
Already things are different. I don’t recall ever having to pose for photographs in my IT career (apart from the odd ID card). My excellent photographer and website designer did her best as I stood in 1 degree temperatures trying to channel Gene Kelly. I’ve had to work through the intricacies of self-publishing (more on this in a later blog) and deciding on logos and cover pages.
Will I miss IT? Probably, but I’m sure I’ll be back. More importantly, I’m able to dedicate the time to creating and producing own material.
