A Union Man

My shiny new union card

On Friday, my shiny new NUJ membership card arrived, along with a copy of their freelance fees guide. According to their rates guidelines, I should be getting 230 pounds per thousand words. Given that I've written about 14,500 words since I began this blog almost two months ago, I calculate that you, dear readers, owe me the modest sum of 3,335 pounds. I demand my rights, you exploitative bastards! Or otherwise, the membership might have to vote on withdrawing labour. I'll happily accept either cash or cheques.

Seriously, any feedback on what and how I write here would be very welcome.

Also, remember that you can just email me to take me up on my offer of a free book in my Irish Times competition.
