Yes, you. You need a plan, I need a plan, we all need a plan if we are going to tackle the 50,000 word challenge and emerge as healthy, happy human beings at the end of it. There's a general attitude in the amateur writing community that there are two basic types of writer: The … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Prep – You Need a Plan
100 Days: Over the Hump
I am well into the second half of my 100 Days of Productivity Challenge now and it continues to gain momentum. You may have noticed that I didn't post last week. That is because I was too busy living life, enjoying my city and embracing the challenge of actively doing things of my own volition. … Continue reading 100 Days: Over the Hump
Nearly half way!
I am now 42 days into my 100 Days of Productivity challenge and, so far, I haven't dropped the ball once.

However, I did manage to meet my goals every day. I’m finding this process really helpful and … Continue reading The Second Week In
100 Days to a Better Me and You
I'm not really one for making resolutions (or so I tell myself every January). When I'm thinking rationally, and not caught up in the hype of the promise of a glowing New Year, I don't see the necessity of them. Why decide to be better now, and not in March or last September? What January … Continue reading 100 Days to a Better Me and You
A Day of Promise
New Year's Day is basically viewed as a giant reset button these days, as if one night of admittedly little sleep, that last drink or chocolate before the clock ticks over to the next year and a hurried list on a scrap of paper will somehow ensure that brand new sparkly life you've always looked … Continue reading A Day of Promise
