  1. Hey Nick! Thanks for playing along! I’m flattered that I’m the most successful freelance writer you know. 🙂

    What’s up with having six things on your five things to do list? And when you say that sold windows door-to-door, do you mean Windows (MS) or, you know, actual windows?

    1. LOL, I didn’t even notice I had 6 things there. Let’s just say I’m a very busy man! As for the windows, they were of the double-glazed variety and I only sold two. Since I got commission only, I gave up after two weeks of solid canvassing with just $50 to show for it. 🙂

  2. You’ve certainly come on since the early days Nick. Owwww! there’s fireworks going off outside my window. They’re a bit close

  3. oops missed this while faffing about seeing the country lol I will add it to my list of writing jobs to be done as soon as I no longer have a fever!
