“When we are inspired magic, happens” Ah inspiration, the golden elixir. It is what plants flowers in the mind that grow into something beautiful. And one of the frustrations aspiring writers most frequently tap into google is; how do I find it? I know this very well as I am one of them. I once...
‘The beauty of a rainbow, is the refusal to be one colour’ Have you ever had a rainbow appear, just when you need something to brighten your day? Perhaps one of those mornings it’s showering with life’s unpleasantries. Stumped your toe? Exhausting to do list? Boss being an ass hole? Suddenly, you look up at...
Let me be real here, sometimes the life of a writer is enough to leave you belting out Whitney in your living room. (Yes I have done this) And it makes sense. You see writers spend a lot of time in their heads. That space can easily switch between the weapon and the sword. Depending...
