My Sunday morning routine of waking up early and writing this newsletter is therapeutic. I’m not sure what it gives me therapy for, but it definitely soothes something.
I’ve moved back to London recently and wow, since I left at the beginning of the pandemic, the city has changed. It’s still as fun as ever… but it feels a bit disjointed; a bit broken.
Prices are as expensive as ever, places are as busy as ever, but are people happy? I’m not sure. Places are busy…but when you go down a side street it all completely dies off. I’m not too sure what I remember, but the infiniteness of London seems…less infinite.
On the other hand, I feel like this anti-climax may come from how global my life has become. This newsletter speaks to 2600+ writers from across the world - mostly from the US actually… and that’s crazy isn’t it? Hearing about different perspectives and touching base with different lives, you realise how significant other parts of the world really are.
I guess it could also be due to domestic politics that are getting in the way. The recent Owen Paterson debacle (lobbying for Randox - him making £100k and them selling $500mn worth of vaccines) definitely makes for a slimy atmosphere (a slippery slope to corruption, some would say) - but to some extent, this exists everywhere.
Maybe it's my seasonal depression, or maybe it’s because I didn't get to see fireworks and got stuck in the protest outside Parliament on Friday, either way, it’ll take me some time to settle back in. Country living was great, but it’s time to dive back in.
In our lives, we make a difference by the things we do - so I’m going to keep busy!

Remote Writing Jobs
I try to ensure all the positions are well-paid, and if not, they’re helpful in some other way. Our readership varies from new writers to established writers, so some jobs are better for others. Either way, if you have any questions, get in touch with me or the employer, see how you can help, and grow your network! I try to only show remote jobs, but sometimes allow odd interesting jobs to pass through.
