    Love this episode Paul – and, Gary, I went and purchased a copy of your RV book before I got to the end of the episode! Finally, someone’s interviewed a writer living nomadically from an RV who’s demonstrating that a great way to answer ‘can I make a living from my writing’ is to minimise your costs!
    I’m a newby writer of natural history and popular science living in a Berlingo (yup!) in Cornwall and the Isle of Wight. It’s a wonderful way to live…. Because my costs are so low (around £15 per day all in, inc. van costs), my mind is free of financial stresses and I have a huge amount of time for writing. As I say, I’m a newby, so I’m not yet sure if I can earn £15 per day from book sales and thus live long-term. I currently have a cushion of savings. But I have a long list of around 50 book ideas and can easily write around 5,000 words a day so should have a few books out quite soon.
    Anyway, we need to hear more from nomadic authors!

      Hi Steve, I love your story! Thanks for your comments on this episode too, much appreciated! Would you send me a photo of how you live so I can share it and give you a shout-out when I get back from Spain? Have a great Christmas, Paul

      Hey Steve,

      Thanks for the kind words and buying my Guide To RV Living book. The nomadic life is so much fun, and I have been doing for many years, so at times I forget I live a different life than most. Living in an RV, or in your case a van makes you really narrow down the items that are important in your life.

      You are dead on about having so much more fee time, and far less stress. I would ask if you are a struggling or just starting out writer why would you not live the decluttered nomadic life? Today you have all the tools to self-publish, and/or run a business remotely. Good on ya Steve keep it up, and wish you great success in your writing journey 🙂
