The Write Stuff

It's funny how your mind can surprise you. Just when you think you know it, it comes out with something totally unexpected.

I have been approached to write on a regular basis - and get paid for doing so.

I would have thought I would have been doing cartwheels at the prospect of such a thing, but instead, it felt slightly weird. I enjoy writing but getting paid for my views to be known and distributed, seemed somehow - very public and commercial all of a sudden!

Don't get me wrong, I am not going all idealistic here, there is nothing immoral or unethical about getting paid for your views. It's just that I am used to writing for myself and an audience I feel I know - not writing on behalf of another party.

One thing is for certain, is that if I do decide to embrace the offer, I will be paid to write - not paid to think as I am told to think.

There are others who are far more expert in that particular field

Wherever you may be - be safe
