The Crust of the Matter

20.01.14
 
Someone else asked me today if they could read my journal (which forms the basis of the blog, which in turn is the foundations of a novel). They too observed that I’m far to clever to be in this situation. I admit again that it’s one which I partly placed myself in.
 
They also asked why I do this (write) and not channel my energy into something more financially rewarding. Writing is a therapy recommended by CRI and other recovery organisations. A more financially rewarding pursuit may present itself in the future, as may some form of financial recompence from the writing itself. the point is though, I enjoy writing: it’s my focus, my outlet; it keeps me busy.
 
And although I’m not earning anything from the writing (yet), I value satisfaction over financial reward. This aids my recovery in the interim period between now and becoming fit for work again or returning to run my business.
 
Put the £75k I used to earn in annual salary in front of me, along with the car which came with my Sales director job. Place alongside those a notepad and pen and see what I do:
 
I take the notepad and pen.
 
Bung them in the car with the £75k and fuck off.
