Day Two

I have an actual freelance assignment to do… dead easy, 1000 words. Suddenly finding the hoovering, dishes, repotting plants etc. very important and time-critical. I might pull up some of the flooring in that bit of the kitchen that feels sort of spongey to walk on. I’ve got two days to do the article, anyway. It’ll be fine. Unless I suddenly get a huge influx of lucrative freelance work needing done within a single day. That’s never happened before, admittedly. It’ll probably be fine.

My current most-used emoji is that one that looks like the face you do when you’ve made a mistake… teeth bared, square mouthed, a face associated with a sharp intake of breath, with waiting for a reaction when you realise you’ve misjudged your audience; the rictus grin emoji. My knee hurts. Day off from running.
When I’m freelance I’m going to dye my hair green and eat nothing but raw garlic.

I'm a registered nurse making the jump to freelance writing. I started chronicling my notice period with a view to a smooth segue into full-time writing, but it's become an emotional rollercoaster.
