• A writing mentor?

    Thursday, December 18, 2014 Permalink

    A few bloggers I follow have already been discussing their New Year’s Resolutions and plans for 2015. I’m not big on resolutions but I sometimes set some goals for the year. I mean naturally I commit every year to losing weight, doing more exercise, earning more money, working less, being less of a bitch and so forth. But, well… I’m talking lofty aspirational stuff. 

  • Bowel movements & other dinner party conversations

    Sunday, December 14, 2014 Permalink

    Disclaimer: Don’t worry… I’m not about to launch into great detail about bowel movements and the like. ;-) 

    I still remember as a kid, finding it strange my great-aunt used to go on and on (and on) about her bowels moving. Or not. (And mostly not, from memory!) I was appropriately horrified – having grown up believing that one doesn’t discuss money, politics, sex or religion. And bowel movements. Well… except when they do of course.

    I have to say I’m a little disappointed in the great minds of our universe. While focussing on frivolous things like climate change, Ebola, how to land a comet on Kim Kardashian’s butt and the like there are some very important issues which have gone unexamined.

  • Finding my voice – NaNoWriMo

    Tuesday, November 25, 2014 Permalink

    I’m participating in NaNoWriMo as planned. And for the first time ever, I may well ‘win’ – which means I’ll reach the required 50,000 words during November. (I’m up to 39,951!)

    I love writing and I’ve talked about this several times before… but I usually struggle for ideas, so the notion of a novel has always been a bit out of my reach.

  • Wordless Wednesday: where I live

    Wednesday, November 12, 2014 Permalink

    I’ve mentioned before that Wordless Wednesdays are my least favourite posts. I used to assume image posts were a bit of a cop-out  – an easy option, but I realise that’s not the case when these posts take me longer than any other post during the week.

  • Why I love the Fraser Coast

    Tuesday, November 4, 2014 Permalink

    When I decided to make my seachange two years ago I worried about how I’d fit back into life on the Fraser Coast. I was a very different creature to the 17 year old who left home for Uni almost thirty years before. I’d lived in a range of cities and countries and worked in a myriad of different professions.
