When you visit my website you might get the impression that not much is going on. That’s because I don’t work as a freelancer as much as I did before. Don’t get me wrong – I still work! – but mostly for the same employers.
During the pandemic I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to work from home, The only slightly worrying thing that happened was that we at SIXT had to do so called Kurzarbeit. That meant shorter work days and less pay, but once I got used to the situation it was quite nice to have more free time on my hands.
In my spare time I put a lot of energy into administrating my Facebook group of aspiring writers, Skrivdrömmar (Writing Dreams, in Swedish only). For a long time now I have been trying to write a book. However, going at it alone is hard. I needed to reach out and find likeminded people. Thanks to the FB group I have found new friends and am able to share information about my favourite topics.
I am not a 100 percent sure of what kind of book I want to write. There are a handful of half-finished projects to choose from. To boost myself up a bit and get the inspiration flowing, I brought my old Berlin blog Berlin2.me back to life. It feels good and fun to share stories about my beloved Berlin with my readers.
That’s how 2021 is going so far. Let’s see what shows up next…
