Living the Dream Part 24 (Crutch)

For the first time in what feels like absolutely ages, I’m doing a LtD post about writing! *Faints* One thing that bugs me while I’m tapping away at my keys is always being conscious of shoehorning myself into a trap of word repetition. I absolutely hate it! If two consecutive sentences start with the same … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 24 (Crutch)

Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

My latest offering in this series isn’t a very positive one. The prospect of worthlessness is very much a fact I’m having to face far more than I wish I had to. In recent times, my depression appears to have deepened. It’s deepened to a level I really hoped it wouldn’t. I don’t mean to … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 23 (Worthless)

Living the Dream Part 22 (Doubt)

My schedule is all over the place right now thanks to a hectic Mental Health Awareness Month and a couple of hastily prepared posts in light of recent events. Not to worry though. Things are starting to ease their way back to something resembling normal now. Welcome to another edition of the series centred around … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 22 (Doubt)

Bear with Me…

In my haste to get out plenty of material for Mental Health Awareness Month, I neglected to remember that I hadn’t arranged anything for when it finished. I shall be going back to biweekly posting every Tuesday and Saturday, but I have nothing to post today unfortunately. I have been doing other writing work aside … Continue reading Bear with Me…

Living the Dream Part 21 (Writing Is My Coping Technique)

I’m tying in this series to Mental Health Awareness Month as I feel the two are quite substantially linked. This series has always predominantly been about my writing and offering an update on how it’s going. In this edition, I’ll talk about why I write. The reason only became clear to me once I was … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 21 (Writing Is My Coping Technique)

Mental Health Awareness Month in October

As some of you may be aware, World Mental Health Day falls on Wednesday 10th October. If you weren’t aware then you are now! As you can probably imagine, there are going to be various events held as attempts to defeat the stigma surrounding mental illness continues. Check Google and I’m sure you’ll find out … Continue reading Mental Health Awareness Month in October

Spam & Phish is Leaving a Bitter Taste…

I don’t know if it’s just me or if the same thing is happening to other fellow WordPressers of late, but I’m receiving emails—sometimes dozens a week—telling me that somebody has started following me via email. I receive notifications telling me that I’m being followed by such and such a person and initially I was … Continue reading Spam & Phish is Leaving a Bitter Taste…

Living the Dream Part 18 (Seas of Change)

It’s been a good long while since I offered an update on my writing. It’s been a good long while since I posted anything! I’m back now and I intend to stay for as long as I have material to write and publish. I think a break to collect new ideas is probably necessary in … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 18 (Seas of Change)

No Apologies

This is just a quick post to announce my effective return to the blogosphere. I’m sure my two, maybe three, regular readers have missed me! As the title states, I have no intention of apologising for the unannounced break. That would imply that I’m sorry and feel guilty for it. Neither of the two apply. … Continue reading No Apologies

Living the Dream Part 16 (Work-Life Balance)

It finally happened. After a long, long time of waiting, I recently started my new job. It’s great to finally be back in work after my longest ever stint of unemployment. Having to watch the pennies like a hawk had become somewhat tedious. I’m just over a week into the job and it’s just been … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 16 (Work-Life Balance)
