I would not be able to cope with a normal job!
I work long hours but I fit it around how I feel , for example yesterday it took me all day to formulate 415 words for my next book ( On Autism and menstruation) , however once this was done I did another 10 pages.
Working in creative industries means you have to be able to be creative about applying your skills to earn a living , and put money into projects which will take time to return any money.
one of the things I am passionate about is educating people about Autism to make the world a better place for Autistic and Non Autistic people alike.
I incoperate my creative skills by devloping activites for children and adults to help them understand Autism . but also I play music , my trunpet with a Harmon mute makes what is normally thought of aa a loud instrument and therefore inaccessible to Autistic people who are hypersentive to sound into a quiet calming instrument.
Today I'm giving an assembly on Autism and then teaching 4 groups of 7 year olds and then doing a mood concert in the playground
