Last Thursday I posted this on my blog facebook page, I’m hoping my time for dreaming is over and I start ‘doing.’ Tomorrow I am going away for two nights with the ‘Inspiration Project.’ No it’s not a cult. It’s an opportunity to hang out with writers, be mentored by a writer, listen to a … More An Inspiring Weekend.
Another installment from my column in the Irish Examiner. Writing it only reminded me regardless of any new year resolutions, there’s little chance I’ll ever be a ‘good’ person. Just ask my brother. How many times a day must I remind myself that it’s been 2018 for twelve days already? Thank goodness we are no … More There I am in the paper #48
‘Don’t bother finishing that story, it’s rubbish.’ ‘Really? Do you think that’s good writing?’ ‘That’s probably the worst story you’ve tried to write yet.’ ‘You are wasting your time. There are so many other things you should be doing.’ These are just some of the many less than helpful thoughts which are buzzing around my … More Silencing the voices within.
Another article from my column in the Examiner’s Feelgood. It could be called ‘Sky and I… a match definitely not made in Heaven.’ Have you ever looked around and despaired that the more advances we make the more complicated life gets? I was staying in my mum’s house last Sunday night. Joy, I thought, room … More There I am in the paper #44.
I’m back and have dusted the cobwebs off my blog. It feels like ages and no time at all since I last posted. As I alluded to at the time life happened, as it does just when we think we’ve everything sorted, and I needed a bit of space and time to lick wounds and … More What have I missed?
It’s ages since I posted anything about where I’m going with my writing so here’s an update. Hows the book coming on? Sorry it’s not, but that’s not to say it wont. I am not sure why I’ve not sat down to write it, because I do know the bones of the story I have … More Writing update
It’s close to five years ago since I first began this blog, not having a clue what I was doing. Over time I’ve discovered I’m not interested in blogging for money, doing reviews or pushing for likes and followers. This is my happy space. That place where I quite literally can put ‘My thoughts on … More What is a friend?
It’s been very sad around here the past few days so I thought I’d share one of my pieces from the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood. Hope it brings a smile to your faces. September is within touching distance so… hands up who isn’t just a little bit happy? Don’t get me wrong I am not exactly … More There I am in the paper #39
So would you believe it, yer man and myself were married this day 27 years ago! How is that even possible you ask? Obviously because I was but a child and it was barely legal, at least that is the line I like to pedal. It’s hard to even imagine the amount of water that … More Where did the years go?
Today is my best friends birthday, my greatest confident, my closest companion. Over thirty years ago, when life was not what it should be for me, he came along and changed my future. I can never express in words what his friendship has meant to me, nor how much I’ve achieved with him by my … More To ‘yer man’ on his birthday.
