The Manuscript Blues

The manuscript has been read in part by my critique group and by beta readers and I’m getting conflicting feedback. One group is saying my heroine needs to be more emotional, more damaged due to her trauma and another group saying she’s too traumatized. So what to do? OK that last one is something I’m never going to do! What …

Bullet Journal One Month On

In April I wrote about how I was implementing a new planning and productivity system using a bullet journal. Well I’m a month in and I thought I’d give an update. I’m loving it! I’m so less stressed about things I have to do, and so much more organised – it’s brilliant. So what have I actually done? Using the …

A Problem With Conflict

I’ve always had a bit of a problem with writing conflict in my stories. Part of it is that I like my characters and I don’t really want to hurt them. But the other part I wasn’t consciously aware of until I had an epiphany the other day. You see I’m a problem-solver. If you have an issue, I’m going …

A Bouquet of Love Launch

The MC was ‘Kyle’ one of the characters from the bridal boutique and he was fabulous. The official launch was done by Rachael Johns and she commented on each one of the stories in the anthology. I must admit that I laughed and cried while reading the stories as well. There really is something for everyone. There was plenty of …

Blog Announcement

Today I wanted to announce that I’ll be cutting down on my blog posts this year. Since I started blogging in February 2015, I have been blogging three times a week and last week I actually assessed what that meant. That’s a whole book worth of writing right there! So in response, I’m going to cut back those blogging hours. …

Virtual Reality

I went along to the Sexpo when it came to town the other day. For those of you who don’t know, Sexpo is a Health, Sexuality and Lifestyle expo which is adults only. Aside from getting some good story ideas, I also learnt quite a bit. What’s the deal with that? Don’t women have enough body issues without having to …

Ropes Course

No matter where I travel, I always seem to end up doing something up in the air – literally. In Ecuador I jumped off a bridge and while in Busselton this month I did a ropes course. It seemed like a great idea when I booked it and then I arrived and I looked up… and up to where the …
