Debbie Young Has Left the Building

Well, that’s that.  After 13 years, I’ve finally leapt off the treadmill of my salaried job and jumped on to the rollercoaster of life as a freelance.

Time now to reboot my brain, erase the files that are surplus to requirements and make space to record all that my new status will bring.  It’s time to break all those habits, from the 6.30am alarm to the 6.30pm restorative glass of wine, and to go where my fancy takes me.  I might even throw away my watch.

There will be no updates to this blog for the next week, then I’ll be back and raring to go – so please do come back to visit.  In the meantime, happy half term, everyone.  Oh, I forgot – I don’t need to think in terms anymore.  This rebooting may take a little longer than I had anticipated .

  1. I do love my job, granted not all the time, but I adore working with children…but I must say, despite never being a jealous person, I am turning green with envy! HUGE congrats honey, that really is the dream every writer dreams about – to be able to give up their day jobs to fully commit and pursue their lifelong dream of becoming a full time writer. Well done sweetie, I wish you the very best with all your future plans. 😀 xx
