Journey Before Destination (February Update)

February is the shortest month of the year, and with that comes its own difficulties. My goals list, which stays roughly the same for each month, is suddenly compressed by 3 days which makes everything that little bit harder to achieve. Plus, my day job ramps up its intensity to the end of the financial… Continue reading Journey Before Destination (February Update)

Reflections on a Year (December Update)

It’s the end of 2019. The end of a decade. Wow, seems weird when you say it like that. I’ve seen lots of those “decade” challenges floating around on various social media platforms, showing how much people have changed over the last 10 years. To think back to where I was in 2010, barely starting… Continue reading Reflections on a Year (December Update)

Finding the Time (September Update)

Finding the Time Time. That ever elusive concept that keeps slipping through my fingers. The times I don’t have enough time to sit down and write, but I have enough time to do everything else. The Chores. Work. Cooking food. Finding time to write is always difficult. Half of it is because I need an… Continue reading Finding the Time (September Update)

More Learnings from my Travels (August Update)

August has always been an “end” month to me. I think my brain never quite fully shook the school year when I left it many moons ago. I lived for so long in a September – September existence that even now when I can finally run by the normal calendar year, August still feels like… Continue reading More Learnings from my Travels (August Update)

July Blog – Liminal Space

There is some part of me that does not quite believe it’s the end of July. It feels an almost surreal month, one which merges with June because it’s both a “J” month in my head (and June and July look so similar it’s easy to get them muddled – thanks dyslexia!) July is a… Continue reading July Blog – Liminal Space

Why I Write (May Update)

Why write at all? I suppose there are many things that can take up my time in the evening. TV. Reading a book. Playing computer games. There are loads of things I can do; and in the evening, I find I have 1 hour of time to do whatever I want with. It’s amazing, really,… Continue reading Why I Write (May Update)
