There's a lot of stuff going on on my other blog, with my leather craft, painting and so forth, and not so much with my writing. Granted, I've been editing manuscripts for friends, so that has eaten up my writing time. I'm pondering whether or not I should make a go of doing that for freelance work. Maybe I'll just throw up the option and see if I get any nibbles. I have no idea how to build a client base, but hey, I'll see how far I get.
Struggling, of course, to find a steady source of income is weighing heavily on me. CERB runs out next month, and I'm quite stressed. I don't feel I'm especially qualified for any of the jobs that show up in my searches. I'm hoping - dreaming, really - that maybe I can pull enough together from various sources that I can meet my basic needs.
Speaking of things that aren't basic needs, I have my latest order prepared for my next leather adventures. It's a surprising amount of money. There are a surprising amount of things I realized I will need for my next projects that I don't actually have. I also need to replace the stain that I spilled everywhere. Because I'm cool. I'm excited about the next couple of projects. They're still book jackets, but the designs are, well, if I can pull them off, the designs are fantastic. Anyway, I haven't placed said order, because it's expensive and I'm twitchy about spending the money. I'm mulling it over currently.
Anyway, that's where I am right now. On today's agenda, I'll be editing, doing my French lessons, preparing a canvas for my next painting, and then sketching out the painting concept. There will be no leather working until I can place that order. I've run out of material.
Right, I'm blabbering now. I'll head off and start that editing. I hope you're all doing well.
