If you don’t do it someone else will

An idea is of no use to anyone unless you put it into practice. I have a great idea for something bigger than a feature or news story. A book.

Unfortunately, it also requires a lot of research – it’s not something I can knock out from my desk at home. I will have to interview people and visit libraries. It could become almost a part time job.

I am approaching the end of my first year as a freelance. In that time I have been concentrating on making contact with potential clients and proving myself as someone they can rely on. After a slow start, I got to the point where I was working almost every day. Long may that continue.

However, I still have an ambition to write this book (and have had for the past six years or so) and I am becoming increasingly aware that there are other people who are also in a position to write something like this. So I need to make a start soon. My plan is to start researching the book alongside my freelance work and hopefully to start a blog to update potential readers on my research.

So now I’ve said it, I am going to have to do it. Watch this space…
