Little Stories of Your Life

I’ve started reading Little Stories of Your Life by Laura Pashby the other day and it reminded me that this is exactly what I always wanted to do and was doing for a long time, here and on my Instagram. Sharing little stories of my life, writing about things that caught my attention, simply capturing … Continue reading Little Stories of Your Life

Year of reading from home: December update

A month has passed since I've started my little reading challenge of reading as much as possible from home. It's been a good month reading wise and I'm actually even more enthusiastic about this challenge now. I've picked up 13 books and I DNFed 3 of them. Not finishing the books doesn't bother me as … Continue reading Year of reading from home: December update

Your year can begin at any time

For most of us this month marks the end of the year, the slowing down, giving up on the things we didn't achieve. I know it was like this for me for years, but this year is different. This year I’ve decided that December is the beginning of my year. A year when I work … Continue reading Your year can begin at any time

Let the reading begin!

Here we are, 1st of December, on the first day of my year of reading from home challenge. I'm actually positively excited about it. The chance to read the books I wanted to read for a while now, finally getting to them and making the piles smaller each month. To make sure I don't get … Continue reading Let the reading begin!

A year of reading from home

I have 142 unread books at home and a feeling that those piles are not getting any smaller. I guess I'm right as last time I checked I had 121 unread books at home. I wasn't buying that much this year and I've read some from the piles, so how did this happen? I blame … Continue reading A year of reading from home

Buy me a coffee (or a book actually)

I broke my e-reader last night. I fell asleep as I was reading and I was woken up by the e-reader hitting the floor. At this time I thought it was fine, but this morning it turned out it wasn't. I can't buy a new one at the moment, because not earning any money means … Continue reading Buy me a coffee (or a book actually)

NaNoWriMo – the way to my vomit draft?

Have you ever done NaNoWriMo? Are you doing it this year? I'm seriously thinking about it for the first time in my writing life. This morning I've read Zoe Lea's blogpost about it and it got me thinking. Is this the way for me to write my vomit draft? I have a problem with it, … Continue reading NaNoWriMo – the way to my vomit draft?

Finishing things

It's often hard to keep going, to bring a project to the end. Especially when you keep some stories inside you, things you've heard in your childhood or teenage years. Mine is 'she's talented, but lazy', meaning that I'll never reach my potential, that I'll never be able to be who I could become. That … Continue reading Finishing things

Getting back to writing

Not writing, not blogging, not being who I want to be, again. I wish I could say that life gets in the way, but it's not that. I think that the only thing that gets in the way is myself. I've written about it in my newsletter yesterday and the more I think about it, … Continue reading Getting back to writing

Write It All Down

When I saw that Cathy Rentzenbrink has written a book about memoir writing I immediately knew I had to read it. As I couldn't wait till January, I asked Bluebird for a proof copy and they kindly sent me (digital) one. And I'm so glad they did! I was hoping that this book will help … Continue reading Write It All Down
