Inspiring Change In Your World

While reviewing a lot of Facebook posts lately, I have been interested in noting that the world is definitely changing. From one where people are fairly relaxed about important things in life, to where opinions are rife, videos common to portray things that are either just not right, or totally adorable.  Rappers are making their […]

Typewriters and Creativity

Last week I brought an old Remington Typewriter – it’s gorgeous – circa 1920s, and clearly once used in banking so probably not one that was ever used by a legendary novelist!  But I started thinking about typewriters and creativity.  I wondered if there was a link to those great old classic stories and brilliant […]

Can You Write a Book in Only 48 Hours?

I’ve recently been hearing about publishing coaches who offer to help people write a book in only 48 hours.   Intrigued I looked into this further and am surprised to find this really is a trend. However, having written, published, co-authored, and developed dozens of quality books in the last 10 years I can honestly tell […]

Builders and their Houses

Ok my hand is up – I’m guilty as charged.  Just like plumbers with leaky taps and builders with doors that stick, I’m guilty of not doing my own work first.  And that’s a big deal for me, because I constantly hear myself guide other writers to commit to writing at least a few words […]

Inspiration to Write a Good Story

Ok I admit it – I’m insatiably curious about all kinds of things that are ooky and spooky, and a little bit wierd.   But – I’m still a regular normal everyday kinda person who most people think when they meet me, that I’m far too ‘regular’ to be ‘into all that stuff’.  But the […]
