In five days, I’ve seen our firstborn graduate, received a royalties cheque from my publisher, and scraped an Excellent in our recent Teaching Artist short course. Quite a week! Admittedly, the royalties only just cover my petrol costs for attending the graduation, but they’re royalties for all that. And my SCQF credits reflect the fact that it was just a short course, but it’s still great to have survived the course and come away with a decent mark! What next? Watch this space.
