My January is usually filled with self-reflection, planning, writing. These days we can add blog writing, website maintenance (how overdue is that?!) and general scheming to create an on-line presence that may eventually (soon? please?) result in something like income.
As I cruise toward my mid-60’s I do begin? to wonder if income can ever be generated by me for creative work. I’ve already spent something like 40 years trying. Clearly it isn’t working. Yet.
You might wonder why I continue to hope that I can create income from my own work. I believe the word in the polite version is ‘determination’. The not so polite versions: bloody-minded and damn stubborn. Notice I said ‘hope’, not believe. That may be the problem.
I have the business sense of a turnip. That may also be a problem. What I am a firm believer in is if I build it, you’ll show up and maybe spend $5. Umm, suppose I need to create something you can spend your $5 on, eh? It’s in the works me hearties….
Meanwhile I have a birthday to celebrate and a new year to scheme and dream for. Wish me luck?
