Okay, so I am a little buzzed right now. Nothing life changing happened. I didn’t have some grand epiphany either. But I have been doing something in the past couple of weeks that has been slowly but surely shifting my thinking and giving me an energy I didn’t know I could have. You ready for it? I’ve been going out and spending time with people. … Continue reading Find What Makes You Tick and Let it Energise You
I had a list. It was to do this week. In fact, it was to do Monday. Then Tuesday, Wednesday… you get the drift. I got a few things done but not all. And I ate way less frogs than I probably should have too. I just couldn’t get things together this week. My usual routine in this situation is to castigate myself, you know, … Continue reading Why do we procrastinate knowing full well the fallout?
Happy Friday everyone! Gosh, it’s been one of those ‘how did we get here?’ weeks for me. I hope yours hasn’t been too full on and that you’ve managed to tick all your boxes 🙂
I was thinking yesterday about the colossal collection of articles I have been saving to read, like, for EVER, and thought to myself, ‘Miriam, why be so selfish? Let’s share these great articles and be generous for once’. So I said ‘Sure, heck, why not?’ And then I said to myself ‘Why not, indeed?’ Continue reading Great Reads for the Weekend

Twenty minutes passed and I had fully constructed this post in my mind. Bugger. I’m fully awake now. Sigh. Continue reading Synapses Firing in 3…2…1

There has been absolutely no reason for why I have not posted this next scene, other than sheer procrastination which probably equals a touch of the fear of failure 😛 But never fear – I stand before you now (actually, I really am standing … Continue reading Reconciled – Chapter 1 Reminiscing
What a day. I spent most of it working on a submission for a scholarship to a writing academy in Sydney and realised that I also needed to submit a 1500 word writing sample from the novel too. Okaaaaay. So then I slashed my 1800 word opening scene to 1496 words. Then I sat here. Then I wrote to 8 of my girlfriends and sent … Continue reading Reconciled – Chapter 1: The Journey Begins
I’m having a little bit of split identity here – I write in all these styles, and others, and so often here the phrase ‘niche yourself’. Apparently I am meant to niche myself. Um, well, that might be fine for some people, but I’m not like some people. Sorry. I am one of those gals that questions almost everything, asks copious rhetorical questions and can’t … Continue reading Am I a Blogger, a Poet or an Author?
I am a hopeless case – I just can’t write bullshit. I can’t pretend to write stuff that doesn’t touch the heart and pull it out into the light. I can’t devote my energy, time, point of view or ideologies to words that when strung together are ‘just fine’ Continue reading I found myself on the page…
