Who am I?

I’m not sure…

Days go by where I’m not overly sure where I’m going in life, what I do for a living or what I’m making for tea! I feel a bit in limbo again.

So this time last year I was toying with leaving my full time job as Marketing Manager for a large construction group, I didn’t really know what I would do instead but I knew I wasn’t as fulfilled as I could have been. I began writing my first Wimpy book along side and things started to become much clearer.

I wanted to be a writer.

After the release of two self published books, a regular national monthly column and having left my full time job, I have done what I set out to do. Only, I haven’t given it my all as I kept the construction company on freelance for 30hours a week!

Cop out!

What I need to do now is set out as a writer without the time constraints of marketing clients, or do I?

I’m confidently good at marketing and it pays very well if you are good at it. I don’t want to feel not as good as a writer… not as confident. I’m scared I guess.

I need career advice, like the tests you do aged 17 to decide what job you are best suited to!

Should I pave a fruitful marketing career and keep writing as a hobby? I’d never know if I could’ve been brilliant or not.

Does anyone have any light to shed? Anyone else made a successful living out of being a writer? Do you always need to be a ‘celebrity’ as well? Do I stick with what I’m good at or step into the unknown?

Who am I? What do I really want? What makes me truly happy?

Ask me another….

  1. So I recently got sucked back into an industry that I, quite honestly, hate. Did I have to do it? No… but the increased income has really made a significant impact on the quality of life for me, my husband, my dog, and my horse. lol. Whenever someone asks me what I really want to do in life, I basically respond with “The things I love, I can’t make a living doing… despite trying to figure it out for the last 12 years.” So I guess I have no advice to you, just a lot of sympathy and understanding for what you are going through.
