Hi Marichelle! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. This post on Creature Comforts was actually what alerted me to Heart Handmade. I didn't realise you had another blog as well, and I'm really glad to have stumbled across it.

Like you, I ducked out of corporate life after a few jobs, and I'm now working full-time on my novel (doing a bit of freelance copywriting and editing too). It was a big step, but the best decision I ever made. I'm glad following your passion is working out for you too.



hey Andrea! Wow, a novel?! That's awesome, how far along are you? can you tell us what it's about? It's so nice to "meet" another recovering corpaholic ;-)

Well, I'm about 90,000 words through, so the first draft is nearly done! Unfortunately, that's when the real work begins ... rewriting and editing to make it as good as possible. I've published one novel already, a few years ago now, which was a children's fantasy novel, but this one is based on my childhood in Zimbabwe, growing up in the post-Independence years. A difficult book to write, but I'm hoping it will all work out! :)
