Find What Makes You Tick and Let it Energise You

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

Why do we procrastinate knowing full well the fallout?

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?

Great Reads for the Weekend

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

Synapses Firing in 3…2…1

I tried. I really did. But then my brain started shooting off emails to the rest of my body and before I knew it, my stomach was replying to the morning instructions with growls.

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

Reconciled – Chapter 1 Reminiscing

Okay, so it’s confession time. I have had a case of the dreaded procrastination bug for the past three weeks. Yep. 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

Reconciled – Chapter 1: The Journey Begins

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

Am I a Blogger, a Poet or an Author?

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?
