sunday times asked me to write a piece on if i weren’t a writer, it was in yesterday’s paper, here it is:
Of course Whiskey drinking is a viable career path. I’ve worked my way up to a very senior level in Sauvignon Blanc drinking. And some evenings and weekends (when there’s time) I’ve got a part time job in vodka drinking.
You know Juz (though I hate to admit his genius ) has a point…the KWV guy at the distillery presumably doesn’t only get paid in whiskey? (didn’t they abolish the dop system…ps Juz did you picket that move?)
All in all though, I agree with your philosophy. Sometimes one finds that one is doing exactly what it is one loves to do. I’ve thought a lot about this question over my recent week of holiday (because I am about to sign on for a whole career path of advocacy)…and, when all is said and done, I love other things, writing poetry, fashion…but, I rather like the challenge of the way law makes one think…it’s a pleasure to wade through the pile upon pile of applications on my desk (the same ones I am seeking so desperately to avoid by commenting on blogs)
Happy writing Paige!
Will there be a Kindle version of your book : ) or is that selling out to the man!
hey doc, good question, i’m not sure. will check with penguin. i hope so. i’m a fan of the kindle. my mom has one and it’s pretty amazing.
brilliant piece – high five! I have my Northern Transvaal colours in vodka – Wahahahaha
hey thanks Gail. Northern Transvaal colours in Vodka. that’s way impressive. i have a degree in Scotch, but i never played for my province. just not good enough i guess. must practice more.
I have a sneaky suspicion that you’re on your way to being a household name!!!
