I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed and crazy as I get myself together for this year's Prose in the Park event. It's on Saturday, June 4th from 11 to 6 at Parkdale Park (near Parkdale and Wellington). It's a festival featuring local Ottawa writers and I'm going to be there with my books. (Paranormal romance, www.jclewis.ca for those interested in checking them out.)
Building a writing career is like building any small business. It takes awhile to get going but so far, I'm encouraged by the feedback I've gotten. Sometimes I think I'm crazy for even trying but if I can make writing work as a career, it would be the best possible outcome for me. I enjoy it, the hours are flexible (allowing me to deal with my life's challenges as needed) and I can potentially go on earning income even after I die (which would then go to the boys to support them).
