Day of the Imprisoned Writer

Today, the 15th November is the Day of the Imprisoned Writer.

It is an international day that is recognised, annually, as a time when we shine a light on and support writers who have been imprisoned for standing up to those who attack their rights and freedoms of expression, who resist, who fight back with words, against those who would repress basic human rights.

This day was first marked as the Day of the Imprisoned Writer in 1981, (the year of my birth), by PEN International Writers in Prison Committees.

How I Am Tackling My TBR List

Every reader I know has an ever-growing To Be Read list. With the ease of ebook publishing, now more than ever can you get your hands on cheap, easily stored books.

We all joke about the mountain of books, both digital and physical, that we continue to build without reading.

But as a writer, I want to actually read the books I have, not just collect them. After all, I want people to read MY books when they come out rather than have them languishing on someone’s TBR list.

So, I needed a plan!

There’s so Little Time – a Hard Truth

This wasn’t the blog post I had planned to write today. But even with all my planning, sometimes I’m just taken over to do something different.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot over the last 10 months. The hiatus I took in May give me even more time to think about time and what we are all doing with it.

How to get more bookshelf space

Every avid book lover knows the frustration of running out of bookshelf space. I am no different. Also, since I love me some paperbacks using a kindle to solve this problem just isn’t the answer for me.

So here’s how I gave myself more space.

What changes I have made thanks to my Hiatus

I’m back! And with a new look to my blog, I hope you like it 🙂

I did miss being on this blog and on my little pieces of the internet, but I am so glad I took this hiatus. It truly cleared my head, helped me resettle and gave me some insights into destructive behaviour patterns I’d started to form.

See you in a Month!

For those who missed it, I recently wrote a post about how I need a break to focus on my health and wellbeing. So I’m taking a month-long hiatus throughout May.

There will still be some posts appearing on my blog, these will be my guest posts on Wednesdays. All these posts are scheduled so I really am taking a break.

All comments after today will be responded to in June when I’m back.
