Since my employers made the official announcement today, I can finally share a piece of news I’ve been keeping to myself for some time.
From 10 September I’m taking a year off to finish my next two books, Seize the Girl and Open; freelance; and work on some other personal projects. For most of the year I’ll be travelling in Southeast Asia. the first stop is Chiang Mai, where I spent three productive weeks on a writing holiday this April.
I’ll post details of a farewell party to Facebook soon. Until then, enjoy this TEDTalk by designer Stefan Sagmeister, which gave me the idea for my writing sabbatical when I first saw it in 2009.
