A Revelation & An Announcement

If you’ve been visiting this blog over the last few weeks, you’ll see I’ve been wrestling with some issues.  Things in my life have been getting overwhelming and I had been focusing too much on what I consider “busy work” as a way to cope.

Normally in this situation, I do a reset and things get back on track.  However, not this time.  Because technically, this time was different in many ways.

Why it’s Super Important to do a Reset Sometimes

How often do you feel there just aren’t enough hours in the day?  We cram our days full of chores, work, errands, family, projects not to mention sleeping, eating, etc and if we’re lucky we managed to find some time to chill or do fun activities.

Well, recently I’ve felt like all I do is work.  Housework, business work, paperwork, blog work, marketing work… and it’s been getting me down.

When that happens, I usually try and step back and take stock.  So here’s me…stock taking.

Let’s Connect: Tell me about yourself

I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed with all the changes that have been happening.  For those of you who’ve followed this blog for a while, you know I have severe anxiety and one of the triggers is ‘change’.

I’ve received some very supportive comments and messages that have helped.  It reminded me just how incredible the Blogging and Writing community are.

So I thought I’d do another “Let’s Connect” post.

Why I don’t journal anymore and what I do instead

Since today’s question on my Twitter Game #TheMerryWriter asked “Do you keep a diary or journal?” I thought I’d discuss that in my blog. 

By the way, if you’re on Twitter and looking to meet other writers, and haven’t already, do check out my game.

Myself and my co-host, Rachel Poli post daily questions and the participants are wonderfully supportive and encouraging of each other and the game can help you build your network 🙂

The current “Game Board” is pinned to the top of my feed if you’d like to check it out.

Author Spotlight Ari Meghlen

The wonderful Aurora over at Writer’s Treasure Chest did a spotlight interview of me! Big thanks to Aurora for having me on her blog

Writer's Treasure Chest

Welcome!

1. When did you start writing?

Firstly, thank you so much for having me on your blog.

I’ve been writing since I was given unsupervised access to pens. 🙂 I believe it was around the age of 8 years old. I loved making up stories and a teacher gave us an assignment to describe a friendly monster under the bed. I wrote not only a description but a story about him. And I haven’t stopped writing since 🙂

2. What motivates you to write?

I don’t really need motivation to write. It’s just what I was born to do. I am forever caught by scenes, character or plots that just fill my head until I need to get them down. It’s like writing relieves pressure in my mind and gives space to all the new ideas slipping in.
