There are two episodes of two entirely different TV shows that always make me cry. I don’t know why. Maybe they invoke something in me that I don’t know about. Maybe they’re just damn good. But I love the writers and actors for “going there”. It’s that extra mile, whatever they have done. They […]
How Do You Choose What To Write About?
How do you choose what to write about? Not so much in blogging, but in “big” publish-able book terms? I have two main books that I think could be taken to a mainstream publisher. (For some reason, neither feel right to me for self publishing.) One is about Ben’s journey with diabetes and all the […]
How NOT to capture a dream.
In the middle of the night recently I was having a dream. Part way thorough I half woke up & thought “wow, this would make a great movie. I should wake up and write this down” With my link sleep being crap recently, I opted against myself and stayed asleep. I still remembered […]
Do You Suffer For Your Art?
Do you suffer for your art? It’s a cliche. The rags to riches tale. But do you have to suffer for your art? I don’t even mean suffer on a grand scale. Poverty. Trauma. I don’t think these are necessary. So is it truly dedication that you need, not suffering? I […]
I dont WANNA!
I just haven’t felt like writing this week. I’m tired, plain and simple. I’m trying to get into a better sleeping habit as well, because I think that’s contributing to my tiredness. I sit down and think about writing for this blog, and this is what goes through my head: “I don’t wanna!” This […]
Units of Measurement
As I was trying to get some corn from an oven tray to my plate last week, the work shit-ton popped into my brain. Normal, right? Which got me thinking. What other weird units of measurement are there? They can be real, fake, or just sound fake (or real). Share yours below! […]
Blogging Is Awesome
I had meant to go out to the markets this morning for a wander. Instead I ended up lying in bed, playing on Pinterest and generally doing nothing. In fact, I only go out of bed because my iPad battery was down to 3%. (I know, first world problems, right?) Zoning out…relaxing…whatever you […]
Yesterday, I noticed some traffic coming onto my blog from Kidspot. I thought that was a bit odd, as I don’t generally read the site much (seeing as it’s largely parenting and I’m not a parent, though I do frequently act like a child). It turns out I had been nominated for Voices of 2014 […]
Fleeting moments Are life Fleeting moments Are not a career Fleeting moments Are when you touch the soul of another
Blogging for Uni
Education is not something I blog about often but it is something that is important to me. I’m not a great fan of traditional systems but learning in general. It doesn’t matter what you learn, it matters that you learn. Some people go on to do awesome, world-changing things it’s their studies, some become corporate […]
