Saving our Country!

Last night I spent the evening speaking to the counsellors at LifeLine here in Johannesburg. It was such an honour to be invited and an amazing audience. They gave me truly a wonderful evening. We will do it again. And I'm busting to tell you all about it. But today was not the day for... Continue Reading →

Growing Facebook

One thing I hate doing is self-promotion. Blowing one's own trumpet has never sat well with me. But in the current world, we have little choice even if we aren't selling anything! To build a community of any kind, we need to advertise and ask and shout and put ourselves in front of people, otherwise,... Continue Reading →

A New Voice in my Head!

There is a new voice in my head, and it's a good one. First, there were all the people in my life who tried to tell me "You can't write that!!!" "How dare you write that!!!" "You will regret this young lady" and so on, and so on. I have pretty much dealt with them, thanks... Continue Reading →

Inspiring Others?

To be honest, I don't feel inspirational. And I am not sure that I actually do ever inspire people, but as I find my voice and begin using it out loud I starting to hear this word used more and more often and in the context of me! That used to freak me out a lot... Continue Reading →

First go at Prompt Writing!

Ok, so this is a first for me, normally I sit down at my laptop, my soul and fingers go for it ... and I hitch along for the ride to see what happens (well not quite, but I am rarely at a loss for what to say and it seems to come quite naturally,... Continue Reading →

Twitter’nStuff; hindrance or help?

Nearly 6 years ago I started my first blog. It was private with only a small handful of readers that I trusted. "Share your heart" they said. "Share your story" they said. "We will listen and hold your hand" they said. And some did. But most just read it without support, feedback, thanks or encouragement.... Continue Reading →

Which kind of reader are you?

I was just reading this article on real life books and bookmarks, and it got me thinking... I see the writer's point of view entirely and felt a little sad reading it, that I am no longer in that tactile and beautiful space of real life books. Many of my bookclub friends are also bound (in... Continue Reading →

Who said this?

I just read this quote on a mug on another author's page (or an updated version of it anyway, swapping the word typewriter with computer) and fell in love with it. It is how I feel so often when I write, ...that I am bleeding onto the page. Especially as I write the first draft,... Continue Reading →

Break in writing…

It is exactly 6 weeks since I last wrote. Writing your own story when it is a traumatic one is hard. The words flow and it is too long already, but it is emotionally draining, it causes nightmares, and I am not a nice person to have around when it weighs heavily on my soul... Continue Reading →
