Life Lately #22

Is it just me who’s baffled by the fact it’s now June? Where has the year gone? How we are we almost halfway through already? May in particular has been quite a busy month for me, which you can probably tell from the scarcity of posts on this blog recently. Hopefully I’ll do better in June, but it could potentially… Read more »

How To Deal With Feeling Unmotivated

We all have those days we had big plans for – we were going to write a blog post and a chapter of our novel, and clean the car – that we ended up spending in our pyjamas, binge-watching shows on Netflix.

So March is over, and April is here, and with it the beginnings of some decent weather! It has been raining off and on here in my corner of England, but there has also been some warmer days mixed in there, which has been nice. Although I live in a very touristy seaside town, and because the kids have been… Read more »

Life Lately #18

So considering this is my February ‘Life Lately’ post, I’ve left it pretty late. Mostly because time has really been getting away with me and it only just occurred to me that it’s the middle of March already, and I haven’t done this post! Not that I have a huge amount to report over February, other than the English weather… Read more »

Life Lately #17

So, this is actually the second time I’ve written this post! I had an absolute panic on Sunday night when I had a massive problem with my blog. I updated some plugins, which totally messed up the site, but when I tried to restore a back up it then appeared that I had somehow lost every single blog post I’d written… Read more »

5 Ways To Stay Creative On the Go

5 Ways To Stay Creative On the Go

There tends to be this traditional idea of writers and artists as people closeted away from the world in their lonely garret or remote gothic mansion, crafting their masterpieces in isolation… However, in today’s world creatives are generally people who lead busy lives full of jobs, social occasions, family, friends and relationships, and creativity is something they have to squeeze in… Read more »
