It began when I went to bed. I had just finished a long stretch of writing for my book and realised it was gone midnight and knew I needed to get up early. This is normally where my problem starts. I'm not good at going to bed and I’m really bad at waking up … Continue reading My Sweet Dreams Turned Into a Nightmare.
Anxiety is the fear of the unknown! It grips your chest and squeezes every little bit of breath out of your body. It clenches around your heart and makes you paranoid and scared. Anxiety. It invades every pore on a bad day making the simplest of tasks hard. A happy thought can turn to worry and … Continue reading What No One Tells You About Anxiety
Tomorrow is my partners birthday so as is customary in our house the children always make a birthday cake. They love the whole messiness of cooking and the licking of the bowl just like all other children. My children have strong stomachs so raw egg here is a weekly treat!

The Fiction Café Facebook Group I started writing my novel after my holiday to Cornwall in the summer of 2016. I read during some of the ‘research’ into becoming a writer that to be a good writer you need to read more in the genre you intend to write in. I did what any other writer … Continue reading The Fiction Cafe Book Club
I try to pry my eyes open while the persistent ringing throws echoes into my ears making my head hurt. I open my eyes enough to flail my arm at the snooze button.

I will apologise for the lack of presence on my blog… It's because NaNoWriMo happened and then Christmas. It’s unfortunate that they fell at the same time and I decided that with so much ‘stuff’ going around in my brain I couldn’t cope with all of them occupying it at the same time. I need … Continue reading A New Year!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends over the pond. I've woken up today in a happy mood. Whether that is because I slept well or if it's because I hit 29'000 word count for my novel, I'm not sure. What I am sure about is that I have a lot to be thankful for. When … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
This month has been a challenge, to say the least. With my novel slowly taking shape and new plot twists are in abundance, I've realised how very unprepared I was for this month.

November is National Novel Writing Month. I decided to write a book a little over three months ago and have thrown myself into the world of writers and authors full on and at full speed.
