It’s okay if your goal is not based on years, but in decades. It’s okay if your goal is delayed by other goals you want to achieve first. Life isn’t a race, your work is not a race. It’s a journey, and like all journeys, it will take the time you need it to take.
October has been one of those months which has spun past me at a rate of knots. One moment we are mourning the ending of Summer, and the next I find myself flung fully into a non-daylight saving timezone, featuring dark mornings and even darker nights.

Dreams are hard to create because there is the graft that takes it to get there. There are the setbacks, the moments of disbelief, the hardships that hold … More Don’t Give Up Now (Monday Inspiration)
We are now over half way through 2020. It feels surreal to say that. Time has become such a loose concept now that I consider the passing of it in the events on the news. Readers of my Summer Newsletter would have already read about my progress I’ve made with my WIP Assassins 1. The … More Taking Time Out (June Update)
