The reality check however is that I don't write lyrics and verse for a living but mostly for personal catharsis. Who knows, maybe when I get better at it I will give it a whirl!
In the meantime, I do very different work in my day job.

I mostly consult for lawyers who need help in their solicitor's preparatory work.
Please have a look at my work site: Tarjima Transcription Services & Consultancy
legal service provider for law firms, IP firms, banks, financial services firms, publishers, media agencies, NGOs, IGAs and others. We also assist clients with express/urgent requests for litigation support services. Do contact us to find out our regular rates as prices listed on our website are subject to change from time to time.
My worksite is akin to my virtual office as I get a lot of work sent my way after clients come across my web address. I have advertised on a few locations online and that has been helping some!
And this is my FB workpage: Tarjima and her Wordsmiths

I have the best of both worlds like this, I can earn money from home, and I can care for dad without worrying about what is going to explode in the office next.
