Summary of Dec 2015 -
In December I had to find myself some day time freelance writing work. Thankfully I found about a couple of weeks worth. I also secured a contract for the whole of Jan which will (hopefully) pay off a lot of the festival bills I’ve picked up this month.
I also went out and saw friends more. I needed some time off to write jokes but also live as I have become fairly work focused which wasn’t massively healthy.
Booking gigs in 2016 proved a pain in the ass as everyone took off the month (as expected) but I managed to grab a load of promoters just before their annual leave.
