I am going to give myself six months to make this move. I'm not sure where I'll end up, but anywhere else will be a start. I want to leave Wales and Britain completely, but that might not be possible for a long time yet. We'll see. London might be a stepping stone. Most of my friends are leaving or have already left for a variety of locations and it finally seems inevitable that I will join this exodus.
May 2007 is therefore my provisional date for my escape.
Re moving away, I spent four years in Italy and loved it but the shitty city dragged me back, weird eh?
A thought: If you're trying to be Wales's most prolific writer and you move away from the Principality then does that mean you'll have to start again?
Example, should you go to somewhere exotic like Milton Keynes or Bognor Regis, then surely it negates what you've already written?
Just trying to be helpful :)
I've had a bad week too, had three rejections and two of them were from my wife...
Still, even if I move away I can always come back for visits. I'm sure I will.
I've not seen the Kingsway lately, but heard the good things your local council are doing.
I don't think I could leave, but I know my life would be easier if some organisation would give me £10-20k and I could make a *serious* attempt at full-time publishing.
C'est le vie and Nadolig Llawen.
