Blog Revamped…and Talking too much…

My500Words 31 Day Challenge – Day 5

As I haven’t been online and giving attention to any of my blogs for such a long time, I had to spend some time re-looking at this blog in particular and how I needed to restructure it to fit in with my use of it as a Journal Blog. So I spent some time redesigning and shuffling and finding the right theme and so on. I needed to update some of the older posts, and add feature images to just make it look a bit better and decided to go with a static front page that shows featured posts as images as I’m a very visually oriented persona and this appealed to me. This meant that I had to adjust descriptions and the About Me page, so I did some rewriting there. It’s reasonably okay now, so I was finally free to actually do some writing!

Birth-Year Resolutions and Apps to help with Productivity

My500Words 31 Day Challenge – Day 4

My year has really kicked off at a drop and run rate. I was planning to come to the office a week before we officially started to come and clean and organise, both the space and my thoughts, but for some or other reason people were drastically in need to be sorted out and I ended up starting on Wednesday last week by giving 6 treatments and ending the week by having given 15! Not bad at all for January! Continue reading Birth-Year Resolutions and Apps to help with Productivity

Free Writing – Pretty much how I write

So I’m on the third day (officially) of the My500Words Challenge and I’m keeping tabs on LIFT which is a very cool community site for helping you keep track of your goals and it is actually quite inspiring. Thanks Jeff!

I’m doing my own thing with my writing but it is interesting to have a look at the suggestions Jeff makes for every day. I’m loosely following it, and really enjoying the daily e-mails too that he sends to inspire, push and motivate you to keep going. Continue reading Free Writing – Pretty much how I write

Reinvention Year

I’ve so been in a rut these past couple of years and I need to just shake myself up a bit this year ’cause I’m tired of being in survival mode… Kinda scary but helluva exciting!

So this means that to be able to pursue my dream of writing I need to be in charge of my bread and butter daily stuff, and this area of my life has been a bit stagnant, so I definitely needed to step it up a bit. So…the minute I committed to the My500Words challenge, I started being busy in my working life! Which is kinda cool… and frustrating at the same time, because now I need to make other time to write as my day is now filled where last year it was quiet enough to fit writing in… Continue reading Reinvention Year

My 500 Words Challenge via Goins.Writer

I lost my creative drive for about a period of 2 years after I had to spend hours upon hours for months on end editing video material for a martial arts DVD that we had to compile after our Festival. I just didn’t have the oomph to do anything creative at all after that. It’s only during the last month or so that I’ve even felt like writing anything at all again.

So it was just the right timing when I saw Jeff Goins’ 500 words challenge, a perfect way to get back into a daily writing habit, especially since I’ve recently decided exactly what I would like to write my book/s about!
