This year is shaping up to be even worse than the last on the freediving front: it looks like I will not get to see the water until the end of June, which might just be the longest break I have ever had, a painful thought for my blue water heart. Truth is, I am faced with brilliant, challenging opportunities that are pushing me right outside of my comfort zone and I wouldn't miss any of them for the world - I love getting scared like that!
So here my is the blind panic, total "oh shit" challenge of 2018: I have signed a book deal. Which was always coming up eventually but the reality of it is terrifying. Added reason for panic is the deadline: 1 October 2018.
Oh no! What have I done? Coffee! Coffee!
