Na-NOOOOOOO!-WriMo

    I signed  up for Nano again this year. Can you read the stupid tattoo on my forehead? Yeah, thought so. You see, I write slowly. For a slow writer to sign up for Nano is like being lactose intolerant at an all-you-can-drink-milkshake bar. Sooner or later there will be pain and suffering. Right nowContinue reading “Na-NOOOOOOO!-WriMo”

Can 20 minutes change your life?

A few weeks back I would have laughed and said no ways! Now, I know that it can. Just to be clear – I’m not talking about car smashes or connecting with God for the first time. I’m talking about the humdrum of normal life. You know – the parts that never make it intoContinue reading “Can 20 minutes change your life?”

Pop the waterbed! Do it!

  This post is really about passion. In fact, it’s not even my post, but it was so profound I got goosebumps. Serious goosebumps. So if you have every wondered what God wants you to do with you life, this post is for you. Head on over here and check it out. Let me knowContinue reading “Pop the waterbed! Do it!”

Amazing in utero photo for writers

You know when your friends get preggy and suddenly facebook is littered with murky scan pics that could just as easily be elephants or aliens? Well I’m proud to share MY latest in utero pic with you … Everyone… meet Finding Mia… She is 1/8th of the size she’ll be when fully grown. Much developmentContinue reading “Amazing in utero photo for writers”

Creature of the Night

I’ve always been an owl not a fowl, but with my kids on holiday – my nocturnal tendencies are getting out of hand. My days are filled with wipe this, feed that, mop this, carry that, tidy this, cook that, find this, pick up that, pick up that again, all to the tune of non-stopContinue reading “Creature of the Night”

Wet, muddy – but alive

The last week has been my ‘work deadline’ week in which I produce a monthly  mini-magazine for our church. It involves some writing, a good bit of editing, some photography, some arm-twisting (to get others to write for me), a whole lot of design and layout and seriously little sleep. Did I mention that I don’t getContinue reading “Wet, muddy – but alive”

The one that got away

I had a plan for today. I really did. It was rather good too. It involved getting kidlets off to school, then a solid hour writing stint on my project 2, some choreography for dance group tonight and quietly wrapping my brain around cutting our music for the dance we’re working on. After that was offContinue reading “The one that got away”

Stop the drama and pass the spinach please

After all the drama of the weekend, I’m super-happy to post some down-to-earth, regular-but-exciting writing news. That last bit sorta rhymes… hmmm. Relax, I’m not about to sprout poetry at you, but I do want to share some progress. It is time for an update for those of you who cheered me on as I announcedContinue reading “Stop the drama and pass the spinach please”

On being grown up and not getting swallowed…

It’s time for me to face facts. I’m desperately keen to dive in and lose myself in the world of ‘Finding Amy’, (my second novel for those who may not be following my compelling *snigger* saga.) The brutal truth is… I have two other projects that I need to finish first. Its a simple dinner beforeContinue reading “On being grown up and not getting swallowed…”

Shhhhhhhhh!

My house is quiet. Everyone is safely tucked in bed dreaming whatever their day-weary brains are regurgitating for them. Me? I think I’m going to let my brain dribble out through my finger tips. Just a little. My house is tidy. I’ve done a bit of admin and some other bits that needed me andContinue reading “Shhhhhhhhh!”
