Spent all day yesterday sorting through receipts. Things are fairly under control. Now I have to total things up and prepare the package to send to my accountant.
This is something that few of us think about when we dream of becoming a writer. If the stars do line up and you are making a living from your books, you need to transform yourself into equal parts creative person and businessperson. I’m self-employed, just like many hairdressers, carpenters, graphic artists, and musicians. It’s not a bad thing, not at all. I like being in charge of myself. I get to boss me all over the place some days.
I do wish that I could boss these receipts into marching into the proper piles on their own.
There are bunch of new things happening here in the Forest. I’ll be blogging about them tomorrow, I promise.
Meanwhile, check out this article about getting adults to read YA literature.
