I know that from July I need a break from social media, from charging ahead on projects and from creating brand new things. So I allow myself time to recharge. This is how I deal with overwhelm.Read More
Last month I wrote about what my writing projects were going to be during May. I never really thought about doing this again for the month of June but it was fairly successful and I learned from it so I'm going to go ahead and chat about what worked last month and what I'm going to work on this month.
So, as a quick recap, I've come to the conclusion that the best way for me to work is to divide the month up into projects. Not to have deadlines or to get so many words written in a day. But to say, this month I'm working on 'x'.
Last month my two main goals were
1. to increase the amount of blog posts I write
2. to work on my novel.
I achieved both. But maybe not quite as productively as I'd hoped.Read More

My writing projects for the month of May 2018 || What if, at the start of every month, I gave myself one big or a couple of small projects to solely work on that month?

This blog post details what I’m working on, creatively, during May.

In the eleven years I've been blogging I'm constantly inspired by the way women in their twenties and thirties have grasped the online world and really forged ahead with online careers. But I know they aren't the only ones blogging and sharing stories online. Where are the older generations of women? Those in their 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s? And why don't they get as much attention in the blogging and influencer industry? Is there ageism in blogging?Read More
