I’ve been in the fortunate position this summer of being able to stop looking for work, to spend more time with my family and also work on my next novel.
I knew I only had a limited time, but am now wondering if that time needs to come to and end sooner than expected.
I had two phone calls yesterday, both asking if I was interested in contracts. One was only a short job – a couple of days working for an organisation to modify an application I developed. The other role could go up until March next year. There’s no guarantee I would get that role if I went for it, but I’m also very aware that there is no guarantee another role will become available.
If I start work in the next week or so, it will take me longer to finish the sequel to Fallen Warriors. That might not be a bad thing. I have been wondering if I need more time for research.
I’ll need to make a decision today whether to apply for the second role or not…
