The Guilt of Writing

I have realised recently, both from my own experience and from hearing about the experiences of others, that there really is a lot of guilt going hand-in-hand with writing for some authors. It can sound fanciful to some, but it to others it can be something which dries up the flow of inspiration and makes [...]

Writing that second book…

Hello all, I am back from the land of editing for a while and have thus been writing a few blog posts as well I should considering how I’ve neglected to it so! Something randomly funny for you: As an introduction back into blogging I thought I’d write about something I’ve recently realised. Since having [...]

The Internet Is No Excuse For Bad English & Grammar

Men and women have an irrevocable bond

What have a learned after being married for over half a year? The one thing that stands out to me more now than ever is the differences between man and woman and that when they work together (rarely) there can be such a conjuction of characters so as to produce something the world rarely sees. [...]
