Do you ever feel you need more time to write or create, like you spend too much time doing administration in your writing/creative day?
I think often, as creatives, we wish we had assistance, agents, publicists so we simply had more time to be creative. But these things all cost and until we make enough as artists/writers when are we going to afford such help.
Perhaps by having an well paying part-time day job that still gives enough time to write/do art? Hmm any of my readers in that position?
I am facing this issue head on, and about to embark on making more time for creating my art and writing by seeing if I can find some suitable grants out there that will help me employ some people to assist in the other work of being an artist/writer – the admin. I think I remember seeing some.
If you know of any grants please let me know, I’d appreciate your help. I’ll let you know how I get on in the saga that is called building a full time writing career.
On an up-lifting note, I have sent my first individual self published book of poetry and stories to my designer, Paulien Bats, with a proposed page sizing! Yes, she is working on it and soon it will be even closer to being a reality. I’ve had some stories and photography accepted to an upcoming Anthology for a writing group in Queensland (more on that later).
If you are a writer you will know that buzz of having work selected by an editor for publication. It is an absolute joy.
Until next Saturday happy writing and creating and may you find the butterfly soul of song!
