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)

Living the Dream Part 15 (Easily Distracted or Nervous Procrastinating?)

I’ve fallen behind again where my writing is concerned. I haven’t done nearly enough of it of late. Worse still, when I am doing it I’m not working on the one project that should be getting my undivided attention. I’ve also buggered up a bit. I promised myself that, after the last edit of Revenge … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 15 (Easily Distracted or Nervous Procrastinating?)

Is Social Media Creating Social Anxiety?

I was out and about in my hometown recently doing a little shopping. I noticed a friend I’ve known for rather a long time who appeared to look at me and then head in the opposite direction. As it transpired, I needed to go somewhere that was in the same general direction as where he’d … Continue reading Is Social Media Creating Social Anxiety?

Goodbye, Paul.E.Bailey’s World…

Just like that, the change has been made. Paul.E.Bailey’s World still spins, but with a different name. Let’s face it; there’s never been a less popular time to be an average, white man. Women hate us. Homosexuals hate us. The transgendered hate us. Muslims hate us. Hindus hate us. Black people hate us. Hispanic people … Continue reading Goodbye, Paul.E.Bailey’s World…
