Your body aches. Your brain feels like a wrung-out dishcloth. You can barely get anything done and, hang on, why are you even doing this job anyway? Is there something wrong with you?
Nope. You just need a Burnout Survival Kit.
Now available for pre-order at:
I’m an ex-copywriter turned author, passionate about comedy, mental health and being a top-notch cat lady.
My first book Burnout Survival Kit was published by Bloomsbury and I'm currently writing a first novel. My short stories have appeared in literary magazines. I also teach workshops on screenwriting, creative writing, freelancing skills and battling burnout.
On the big screen, my shorts and feature doc have won awards at major festivals. My screenwriting has been shortlisted in BBC, BAFTA Rocliffe and Channel 4 competitions —and two of my feature screenplays are currently in development.
