Quote for the Week
Katharine Whitehorn, in Observer, 1975, said: "The best career advice given to the young is: Find out what you like doing best and get someone to pay you for doing it."
Work, these past few months, has been more fun than work despite the long hours and the volume of work. I absolutely love what I do for a living. Times like these make me know that I made the right choice. When you love what you do, work is never work.
Sure, there are times when I feel as if I couldn't pull another word from my brain. There's associated paperwork and administration responsibilities, if you're successful, just as there are in other careers. All in all though, writing is often sheer joy. Or should be. If it's not, take a step back and see what's stealing your joy away.
If you work in words, always hold tight to the love of writing that got you in the business in the first place.
