Diary – Friday 2nd January 2015
My first true entry on the Persona pages, and it’s the kind of daily diary page I was until recently writing for Bubblews. As with many writers there, I was shocked on New Year ’s Day by their announced decision to withhold promised payments to all authors due to alleged click-fraud by some contributors and to patch over lost income on their office files.
As with many writers I am looking at alternatives to what was a reliable revenue generating site for over a year.
My Friday was dominated by getting back into job searching, applying to become a Persona writer, and preparing my novel for sending to a literary agent. I also started working out a track list for my next community radio show, to be aired live tomorrow.
The day that started with having to greatly reduce (though not totally abandoning) another writing site in some sadness ended on a very positive note as a leading local theatre provisionally accepted a radio script I wrote which they’d like to develop with me.
I look forward to writing on Persona, and meeting / reading / interacting with many new exciting new writers, as well as re-acquainting with many other Bubblews refugees pouring into here just now.
